Fixing the bug is not your responsibility.
should I provide the assistance for free since it is my morale responsibility
No. It is not your moral or legal responsibility to provide free help. You are not their employee anymore.
I made sure to leave extensive documentation on how to use the program and how to edit the source code should they need to.
Whether or not the company shuts down is not your problem. It's not your company. Focus purely on what is best for you. If you're not getting basic rights and pay, then you should have been job hunting for a while already.
In the end you need to do what's right for you.
Just explain that you are going to go on and further your education and so this is what you're doing.
As for the timing--put it back on them. Explain that you would have given more notice had they extended the offer earlier. But you were waiting for the offer to make your intentions known. You owe ...
Both statements have been in courts and both have been ruled illegal and unenforceable.
Overtime can be included in the "basic salary", but only if you are in management or similar positions where your basic salary is good enough anyway (currently >76.200€ p.a.). In addition, overtime can not be generally included, because basic contract law says you cannot ...
No. You gain nothing by signing and potentially limit your employment options by agreeing to the non-compete. By rights, if they were acting legitimately they would have had you sign one as part of your initial employment conditions before you even started the job. This is retrospective CYA nonsense and you should treat it as such.
If they really want you ...
Your employer can not be trusted and you've lost most of your leverage now that you've already moved abroad and settled in.
The only way to rectify this situation is to find yourself a new employer.
I asked to have this specified on the contract. However the recruiter
said that they couldn't adjust the contract (it was ...
Anything serious enough to get you immediately fired is serious enough to jeopardize your future career.
Don't do it.
Hand in your notice and either negotiate with your employer to leave before 4 weeks, or just stick it out.
Given that you have a contract with your employer, deducting your pay in a unilaterally decision is obviously illegal. Your employment contract basically states that you do a certain work and in return get a certain amount of money for this work - So lowering this amount is a breach of the contract and therefore illegal. You should first talk to your boss (...
There's really no need for you to go into much detail about your decision. They made you a counteroffer, and no guarantee for the promotion you're looking for is a part of the offer, and you're choosing to decline it. Just keep it terse, but polite:
I appreciate your offer, however, I believe that joining company B is the right move for me at this point.
Talk to your academic adviser. That is a person in your home department who is responsible for helping students progress.
Come prepared with:
initial scope of work
timeline / schedule / something that says initial scope of work is almost finished
email from your manager saying "hey, there is more work, and I know that's a lot, but you can finish it from ...
A written contract for an employee is just normal. You don’t have to be afraid about asking. Don’t even make an issue from it.
Don’t ask IF there will be a contract as that might really trigger some "don’t you trust me" reaction in your business partner.
Better ask: WHEN he will give you the contract for you to sign, as it is the most natural thing ...
Here's another take:
NDAs can't really work after-the-fact. You need to know beforehand which information you're not allowed to disclose.
In the last 1+ months, you may have already revealed information that's covered by the NDA. Even if you don't remember doing so, it's still plausible that you did; do you remember every conversation/text message/Facebook ...
He got the agreement letter and when he was reading it he has founded
that unfair term. It is "You can't join any competitive company of us
within 5 years when you resign from our company". It seems like this
is totally unfair because 90% of the time he has to work in
software/web development company even after resigning from new
company. How to ...
She does actually have a contract, even if not even a verbal contract was discussed. She has a contract because she turned up for work, and they let her work instead of sending her home.
It’s small claims court, and if she is really annoyed she can call HMRC, tell them that she was working for this company and ask them to check whether the company paid her ...
Do not renegotiate your leave. You've given your notice. That's enough.
However, my current employer was quite shocked by the announcement,
and have informed me that they will be in a very difficult position
should I leave.
This is not your problem.
...since I perform a specific task that no other employee is
available to perform.
If this is really the ...
Red flag. In fact, multiple red flags. Don't give notice without the signed contract in hand.
You only have this mans word that you have a position to go to. Red flag. In this day and age, that is not enough. It is like buying something with IOU-notes, it is just not how things are done. A company should be professional enough to know this. Red flag
TLDR: Yes, it is unprofessional.
If I were to read such a thing in a contract, I'd simply think I was dealing with someone who would be too difficult to bother with, and move on to the next person.
Putting such a thing in a contract sends a message that you are unwilling or unable to handle the technology you are excluding to the point of being a hindrance ...
My previous contract said nothing about providing notice of renewal or
non-renewal of contract, so legally I would be fine if I refused to
renew the contract. But ethically and professionally, would this be
You are under no obligation - legally or ethically - to "renew" the contract.
You used the term "renew" here, but realistically, every ...
You are saying that you have nothing written down and agreed before moving job and all of this was done verbally. Speak to your manager again explaining that the offer you have received is not what you understood it was and you only accepted on the basis of the £50k you agreed. If this has no impact then there might be the avenue of escalating this through ...
You don’t do unpaid work.
If Bob legitimately needs your help he’ll have to escalate it through his boss who will talk to A and maybe give you extra hours. Beyond that, none of this is your problem. If Bob is asking you directly for things, redirect him to his management chain telling him “I completed my contracted work for this project” and, if you want, ...
Short answer: Unless you have a lawyer give you a very clear indication as to the limitations of this clause and how much risk is associated with it to you and your guarantor, run away as fast as you can.
My warning bells aren't just ringing, they are Big Ben sized. The risk of a guarantor having to pay an unspecified (and quite possibly unlimited) amount ...
How to say you don't trust your current employers counteroffer?
Quietly, in your mind, without vocalising or writing it down. Just carry on with your plan, you're not obligated to accept a counter offer or explain anything.
They'll be taking that money from my salary.
Hah. That's not how these things work. Italy's employment laws are pretty complex but there is such a thing as a "fair wage law". Employees have the right to a wage that at a minimum approaches the average for their industry and that average is probably not 0. Beyond that there's also the simple matter that an ...
This will depend on the specific company culture. Some companies will absolutely use "unlimited vacation" as a vehicle to get people to take less vacation, while others will use it in the spirit of the policy and be generous so long as performance is good. Some may even allow it to be systematically abused.
I think you may already know/suspect that and ...
I assume your contract states how many hours you are supposed to work for the company in a week. That they require you to work overtime when needed does not mean that all your not working time belongs to them. In a nutshell: You give them a certain amount of hours of your time, they give you a certain amount of money in exchange.
As long as you don't use ...
Strike that clause out of the contract, initial the change, and send it back to them unsigned asking them to initial the changes you've made.
I suppose you could consult a lawyer, but consulting a lawyer costs money.
To me, this contract is a red flag. And if they're not willing to initial and countersign your changes, I would walk away from them.
You should absolutely leave.
I wouldn't recommend signing anything that has language in it putting responsibilities past the next few months if you don't feel you want to be around past then.
First and foremost... Stop giving overtime for free. This is in everybody's best interest. They have a legal obligation to pay you and you are just creating a liability ...
