I'm in UK and I’ve just resigned as I’ve accepted a new role at a direct competitor (a better package). I have two questions I'm hiding for help on.
I asked my manager what to do next when handing in my notice, I was told to wait until she got back to me with a plan. I heard nothing, ..until a few days later, 10 mins after returning from a funeral (they knew i was at).
Without any prior warning, my manager sent an email to the whole business announcing my departure and also the company I’m moving to.
Is she allowed to disclose this without my permission? I can't seem to find a definitive answer anywhere!
I work on a commercially sensitive team, and I’m expected to work on business as usual (pitch material to win multi million pound business) right until my leave date, (3 months notice). We are regularly up against the company I'm moving to, should this be flagged as a risk? (We do have an anonymous tip-off service). I'm assuming that the answer to this one is that it's the managers discretion?
