    So now that more than 4 weeks have passed since I have been at sainsbury's, I have to give a 4 week notice before I leave but I need to resit my university exams and I want to leave early. I dont care about the references as I have had plenty of jobs in the past who will give an excellent reference.

    Sainsbury's was just meant to be a summer job. So if I quit now can they take me to court ? I know theyre not gonna give a good reference but if I dont put them down as a reference on my CV there is no other way for future employers to contact them right ?

    Also I am still on probation. Anyone been in such situation before, if so what happened ?

    Lol no they won't take you to court. The worst they will do is give you a bad reference and if you're on a wage you may have to forfeit a couple weeks wages if that's what it says on your contract.

    But is there a way for other employers to find out that I have ever worked for sainsburys if I dont put it down on my CV ?

    Also do you think they can hold my payment due to breach of contract ?

    Well it depends on your contract. Sometimes part of the agreement is when you leave you need to give minimum so many weeks notice or else you will you have to forfeit your next coming wage. However, this usually on applies to people on a wage contract/full time workers. I doubt your job will have that clause in your contract.

    If you haven't worked there a suffice amount of time though you will probably lose your holiday pay.
