    I had to quit my part time job as it was interfering with studying. I have so much coursework due over the next few weeks and it's just gotten too much.

    I never signed a contract. They paid me, I worked. Obviously at least a verbal agreement exists.

    According to a girl I work with, the notice period is a month. If I could work the notice period without it effecting my college work further I wouldn't bother quitting as coursework will be finished then anyway.

    So, if I give a weeks notice and not the expected month, can they request more given the fact it's never been officially agreed upon? I got told the notice period was a week whilst I was on probation. Technically my probationary period has ended, but it's never been confirmed or a permanent contract signed. Even the girl on a contract was only on a temporary contract, now expired.

    What do you think? A weeks notice or a month? For what it's worth, I don't actually do any work at work. I'm just a spare set if hands, so they won't miss me.

    A week is fine they can't force you to do more especially if you haven't worked there that long.
