Resignation/withdrawal of interest for employment (on Probation)

Hi all,

Well, I am a probationary employee (5 months) and wanted to know if there are legal aspects/issues when an employee decides not to continue working for the said company.

Given that I am a one man team (IT department) for a medium-large scale business. I have reviewed the terms of the probationary contract and I think there's nothing mentioned regarding termination from the employee's end.

Any insights would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

Whenever you are going to separate yourself from the company, its SOP to submit a resignation letter stating that you wish to discontinue your contract. In case of a probationary period, if you are going to leave before your fifth month, submit a 30 days notice, or, upon being informed on your fifth month that you have passed the probationary period, tell them you decline to continue your contract.

hope this helps

Thanks @mikos23! I have been to companies which I stayed for years and they all have SOP with regards to employment. Unfortunately, this company, from my point of view doesn't have some of the common procedures. Normally on my previous employers, they do address to me my status and inquires if I would like to continue during the start of the final probationary month.

Oh well, might as well inform them ahead of time. As they do take a LOT of time when it comes to recruitment. FYI I was hired after 1-2 months after the previous employee left, without any formal turnovers LOL.

Oh, if I may add an inquiry, my previous colleagues have asked me if I can ask for an additional compensation for the additional tasks other than handling the whole company operation. Is it even OK to do this?

Thanks.

It is okay to ask, but most of the time the company doesn't give it.

If you ask now, they will see it that you are just asking for additional compensation and threatened them with resignation if you didn't get what you ask for.

I believe so too. I'm just thinking that maybe if they understand the needs of the company and still push to only have one individual to cater all the necessary services of a whole company, they at least, give some credit. Well, I think it's been years that they never even plan to have a department or to add additional manpower.

I'll just stick to the my plan on informing them of my interest and give them some hints on 'what to do next'. This is my worst experience in my 7 years of being an employee.

I really appreciated the help Sir.
More power to the people who made this forum possible. It's a great help for us.

unsolicited advice lang. When you ask for compensation, ask for what you would like to be paid for 8 hours of work. Even if they ask you to do something new or "extra" as long as you do not have to work more than 8 hours a day should already be covered by your present salary.

I'm not discouraging you from asking for something extra but rather than say "kasi inutusan nyo akong gumawa ng accounting tasks eh wala naman sa job description ko yun", ang tamang approach is 'sirs, i believe i am worth PXXX,XXX.00 per month or day because i can responsibly and reasonably perform IT, accounting, administrative, marketing tasks etc.
