This question already has an answer here:
So it's 3 days before my last day working in my current company. I have complied with company policy that resignation should be handled at least 1 month before. Strange thing that I noticed is that when I asked how the project turn over should be handled, the boss said that only the projects that I handled alone (alone as in I'm the only one from our company that handles it, doesn't necssarily means totally alone since we have a freelance programmer for that project) that should be briefed to other guys. For other projects I need not to do a thing.
Now, my position in the company is the manager/supervisor in an IT company. I'm not clear which one, since sometimes the boss would address me as the manager, the other time the supervisor.
Another strange thing that I noticed is that apart from my boss and the HRD, no one else knows that I have submitted my resignation. Not even the other supervisor, that I suppose would have to handle the projects on my leave.
The problem is that many of the projects are overdue thanks to the constant turnover of programmers. Constant as in at least 1 programmer a month. My boss has used, "the programmer ran away" as an excuse for a late project to some clients before. I'm afraid that he is setting me up so that I would take the blame since both my boss and the hrd are keeping the information of my resignation for themselves.
The boss has previously accussed me of "deliberately messing up" a project. Indeed I messed that up, but I didn't do that deliberately. I already told him many times that I have too much projects under me. But he always said that, "you're the supervisor/manager, who else should handle it other than you?" In other words he kept using my position as an excuse to push more responsibilities and work, which is why I quit.
Should I inform the clients that I have resigned, so I can avoid being used as the black sheep for the overdue projects? Is it legal and ethical for me to do so? I'm afraid if I don't then the acussation would affect my chance to land a new job in the future. Who would want to hire someone who ran away, right? But can I be sued for announcing my resignation to clients?
