Take remaining holiday if youve got any then jack in
x2 As said take any holidays first then give it the old I've tweaked my back routine and take what ever period of full pay your company offers for sickness, May as well milk it if your going to leave mate.

Don't listen to all this take time off sick nonsense. Just tell the boss you're leaving then either send an email or letter stating your end date so it's in writing.

If you leave on a bad note then you could get bad references for future jobs. Just be an adult about it and you'll get all the holiday pay you're entitled to, a bit of respect and a good reference.

Good luck mate.

Write a short letter - keep it simple, don't go into your reasons for quitting/greivances - just 'Dear X, I hereby give you 1 weeks notice of my resignation from my job as a Y at Z. This therefore makes my last working day the X.'

When I've quit jobs in the past, I always write a letter and hand it to my boss in person (plenty of sample letters on the net). I think it's better to have some kind of written record, rather than it just being verbal.

Have a look at your contract, they may not be able to terminate you without giving warnings first. Also, if your company has a lot of work on, it's probably going to be better for them if you work your weeks notice. I personally wouldn't just go off sick.

This thread discusses some of the issues you are worried about...

It also links to this...

The bottom line seems to be, read your contract.

Good luck with the new job!

Just have it in writing mate, be sure to thank them for the oppotrunity and be sincere.

Did this in 2008 and employer said if my new job goes t*ts up a job's always here if a need it, also tried to offer me a better job to keep me but i knocked it back.

You never know whats gonna happen, good to keep other options availible.
Totally agree

Well I did it verbally, and was told to come back on the monday..to sign the exit from...Was very polite both ways, saying good on me blah blah... really happy for you and I will miss you you have worked for me a while now. I then said if it is ever really busy I dont mind coming in to do the odd weekend, I was then told that is a good idea because it will be very busy soon...blah blah...

Nothing bad was said was very suprised with the outcome. I thought i would be sat down and discuss it but i guess, The employer must of been pleased with the outcome....weird eh?

Was asked if I could definitely see the week through

See leaving on good terms, no 'BAD' Sick Record and maybe a chance to return if need's be!!!

Leave the right way. You never know what'll happen in the future, things have a habit of coming back to bite you on the bum.
