Not sure how to go about quitting my job?

Why bother with a post grad course - waste of time? 17-10-2016

    I've had a supermarket job for 6 months now and that requires me to give 4 weeks notice if I'd like to leave. However, my mum just got a new job which requires us to move a few hours away within the next week. How do I tell my job this as I have already taken 3 days holiday when at this point in time I'm only entitled to 1 and its not possible to work my notice? I am also sort of close to my team leader and I'm not sure whether I should text her and let her know about my situation before I hand in my notice or just go straight to the manager tomorrow before my shift starts. Basically I just feel bad and need some guidance/reassurance!

    Let the team leader know.. it can be sorted

    Youll be fine. Forst get a resignation letter completed. dont burn bridges.
    Ask if you cn chat to team leader or tell her/ him you have no choice and sorry for th warning, then talk to hr or the manager telling them if its ok for you to leave without notice as you will be moving imminently. If you need to attacj a note from your mum confirming it. theres not a lot they cna do, but just do what you can. hand them the letter, go for short and polite. maybe you cna stay within that supermarket grp and just switch branches instead of leaving the company>

    Dont worry its not a big deal especially if you handle it quickly.
