Good Evening.

If your contract says you have to give one months notice then this is what you have to give.

You cannot resign effective immediately. If the employer does not want you to work the notice period they can ask you to leave immediately but they have to pay you out the notice period.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. if there is nothing further
