Accident leave - Quit job employee initiative - Notice

Hi,


I've been searching through this topic and could not find the answer. If this was answered before, so sorry


I'm permanent and have a 3 month notice period. I was doing some interviews last weeks and all looked well, so is probable I will get a job offer.


The fact is that I had an accident some days ago meantime I was going to work.. Some broken bones, a surgery, so it means around 8 weeks off at least...


In this situation, and if finally I get an interesting job offer, Could I renounce my current job?


When the notice would start? - At the date of notification or at the date of work re-incorporation?


Thanks

You're free to give notice during the sickness period and it won't affect your final date, i.e. this would be the same date as if you were still able to work.

It makes no difference whether the sick leave is due to an accident or other illness.

Beware also you should give the notice end of the month (before 1. Nov) if you wish to leave by end of January and be free on the 1st Feb. Doing it today won't change that and you'll still be on work obligation till the end of January.

Wish you a good recovery

Little off the topic.
I understand that the company may adjust pending holidays/vacation days of an employee who resigns on his/her own during the notice period.
However, if the employee falls sick and remains sick for most of the notice period, can the company still legally adjust these pending holidays against notice period.

I don't think they can deduct the sickness period from the pro-rata calculation used to adjust how much holiday time is due, just because it's within the notice period, if that's what you're asking.

Certainly sickness time, even over extended periods, doesn't reduce one's holiday entitlement in a normal year. It does seem weird if you've been off for the first six months to still have the full count of holiday dates to use in the remainder of the year, but that's how it is. And just like the notice period itself, I can't see how it could be any different if you're ill within that time or earlier in the same year.

Re: Accident leave - Quit job employee initiative - Notice

Many thanks to all for your input!! - I think I still do not have enabled the "Thanking" option yet

I had really two concerns, as I read that notice meantime you're sick is not considered but this was when company is having the initiative.

And secondly is that I understand Notice period as mainly a protection for the company, where they can find someone and also where the person who is leaving can do a knowledge transfer. As if most part of the notice the employee is sick, then this protection would not happen

Regards

Re: Accident leave - Quit job employee initiative - Notice

I would just like to update that finally got the offer and accepted it.


I presented my renounce and presented through someone the letter and by now they did not put any objection.... Let's see how it goes as I was told managers were asking if it was allowed to quit a job being in sick leave...


Will keep posted here in case of problems


Thanks!!

Re: Accident leave - Quit job employee initiative - Notice

Does this mean that you will start your new job… on sick-leave there?

Actually they can. Legally nothing to prevent it but the practical application depends on your company's own rules. Mine, for example, reduces pro-rata after you have been off for 3 months.
