I really looking for some advice relating to notice periods that should be given.
I work at a City Bank as a limited company, through an employment agency, and was contracted to work from June 2015 until Dec 24th 2015. I have been approached by another company with a job offer that must begin by the 14th December. My contract has absolutely no entires relating to a termination notice period or resignation notice period. It merely states that my contract is 'Likely to end on 24th Dec 2015, but may be extended or a permenant role offered'.
I want to go forward with the new role at another city bank, if offered. But I have to start on the 14th Dec. Am I right in presuming that I can give 'reasonable notice' to my employer? It's only been a 6 month contract and I have only worked for this bank for this period. My payment cycle is weekly, after submitting hours worked to my agency. Would 1 month's notice suffice? Am I permitted to end a contract early with no 'notice period' mentioned in the contract? I assume that either party can cease the agreement at any time with 'reasonble' notice given....or am I missing something?
Any advice would be very much appreciated.
Many thanks & kind regards.
