Please help if you can as i'm so confused about what i should be doing...
I'm due back to work on the 31st May but i dont want to return. when should i hand my notice in (thinking i need to 4 weeks before i'm due back) how do i word the letter and what do i do about the annual leave i have accumilated since being on maternity leave?
i dont know about your annual leave, but i would guess they will sort it out - i would give them as much notice as possible, there is no reason not to tell them now tbh, especially if they have to fill your position, it would a bit daft not to let them just get on with it
im not sure how you would write the letter, im not returning either but i went in and told my boss face to face and i found it much easier and more personal to explain the reasons why, she was fine with it she understood.
but when i was reading all my maternity papers it said that i had to give atleast 8 weeks notice before i was due back to work if i wasnt returning or if i wanted to extend my leave.
otherwise my employer could decline and i would have to return to work my notice, or somthing like that.
i dont know if its different but its just what i read.
maybe its worth looking up hun on directgov just to be sure. xx
