Can I hand in my notice before a disciplinary?
I have been working at my company for just over 2 years now. I have been wanting to leave for a while now due to they way that they treat their staff. Over 150 staff have been and gone in the last 2 years (mostly sacked!) and we only have a workforce of about 40. I am one of the highest earners and have been expecting them to try and get rid of me for a while. They have now suspended me for using the internet at work. I have had no previous warnings. I am confident that I could find work within my months notice period. Can I hand in my notice and get paid for my notice period if I am due for a disciplinary?

Yes Jacky, Katherine is right. If you choose to leave, future employers may well want to obtain a reference from this company. If your employment is terminated, again they will at some point probably be approached for a reference. I do think that your best bet is to attend the disciplinary, as hard as it may be. If they sack you, make sure you appeal. This will obviously help if you then decide to take them to a tribunal.

Yes you can, it might be worth talking to a manager before you do it. It does sound a bit of a poor excuse, I can't believe they would sack you for that - you'll probably just get a warning.

katherine g
they would probably be glad if you did resign. The main issue to think about is your reference from them; they are legally obliged to be truthful to other employers; and what will you say to potential other employers?

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

You can certainly hand your notice in now.
However if they decide that you are guilty of gross misconduct then they in turn can sack you immediately and you will not get your months notice or months money.

your choice.
