    Hi, I've recently quit my full-time job. I am due about £500-600. I don't think I will see it. I do have a contract and it does say I have to give them a weeks notice, but because of my health and been diagnosed with a few things, I am unable to serve my notice for that week. I have been told by a very close friend that I should go to to the Job Centre and fill out a Self Certification letter and send that to them, I have a locker key and a swipe card which I will be sending too. Also been told that I should get my partner to phone up and state that I will no longer be working for them and that I resign as of today. Things seem so complicated but can anyone help me out? Would appreciate it. Thanks

    Do you have any sick time or holiday left? You could use that to cover your notice. If you don't give notice and just resign, they can hold it against you. They have the right to sue you for damages (but I highly doubt they would bother), or they may withhold payment for the week you would have otherwise worked. That being said, they can't withhold any outstanding wages unless the contract you signed specifically stated otherwise

    Well, I have to quit due to health problems so I can't do any notice. I will be phoning first thing and explaining what's happened. Anything else I can do to make sure I get paid? I'm needing this pay:/
