Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Good evening. I'll be assisting you with your question.
Just so I have this correct, there is no employment contract currently in place with this employer, correct?
If that is correct, then you are under no obligation to give a certain amount of notice.
Without a contractual obligation to your current employer, you are not bound by any restrictions on how you depart, and how long you have to give notice.
If they had a contract with you, you would be bound by its terms and could be sued for leaving without the proper notice. But, since they didn't have you sign one, you aren't bound by anything.
If you haven't signed anything, you don't have anything to worry about.
Glad to help!
Can I do anything else for you?
If there isn't anything else I can do for you, please remember to "rate" my answer. Good luck.
