Hello everyone, let me just go through my problem and hopefully you can give me advice.
I was working for a huge international company as a minimum wage employee for a year and a half, I handed in a computer written letter of resignation in January of 2012. Around a month later, having heard nothing from them and not having worked since then I received a letter from my manager stating that although they had received my letter of resignation they needed it to be hand-written and not printed and it had to be sent into them as soon as possible. The same day I wrote a hand-written letter and posted it that same day.
This morning I've received a letter saying that they had heard nothing from me (despite me having posted them a letter) and that as of today's date I had been summary dismissed. I phoned the branch I was employed at and they tried to make it sound like it was normal termination of employment, despite the fact it said I had been dismissed on the letter. So I rung head-office who told me that they can't really do anything and I should sort it out with my old manager.
No-one seems to be helping me, so can anyone here provide some advice for me?
Can you handle the heat?
