I am really hoping that someone can help me. Here are the facts: I have been employed by Company 'A' for 6 weeks. I was offered the job at company A by being given an 'Written Statement of Employment Particulars' by way of an offer letter. In this letter it states that my notice period is 4 weeks and my probationary period 6 months. I have now been offered a job with Company 'B'. I have handed my notice in at Company A and requested I start my notice immediately. I asked whether my notice period would be 2 weeks as I am still in probation and they have stated that I need to work the full 4 weeks.
Question: Does anyone know where I stand with this? I want to get out ASAP. Does the fact that I havent received the remainder of my contract help me? Does it mean that what I have received so far is void?
Many Thanks in advance.
