- How do I tell my boss I quit? 5 answers
I've been offered a job at a better company with a much higher salary. I'll be signing the employment agreement sometime this week.
Anyways, if you've read my whole slew of other posts about my current workplace then I think resigning without drama is a key thing here.
After all the comments and uncomfortable conversations I'm not on the best of terms with my manager and HR.
The CEO of the company is my former manager (he got promoted during my time here) and he is actually the main head of the office but he's not in everyday. HR and my other manager are both in the office everyday but they aren't exactly my boss or 'in charge' if you know what I mean. It's a small office with just 12 people here.
I was thinking of sending out a respectful resignation notice email to all 3 of them but I'm not sure if that's the best way to go about it. I could do it in person to just the 2 of them but the CEO may not be around that week etc.
How would you handle this? Is it better to do it in person? Send out an email then have a meeting?
Also, according to Canadian law I only have to give 2 weeks notice because I'm not at a senior level. My employment contract says that I've to give 4 weeks notice. I've run out of vacation time too. The new place needs me to start in 3 weeks. I'm sure this won't go over well with the people I'm not on good terms with.
Edits: I've done some more research and according to the law in British Columbia an employee is not required to give any notice at all if they would like to terminate their employment. I also haven't resigned my employment agreement since starting there over 2 years ago.
