When to quit your job and how to make an accident at work claim
You should be able to quit your job at any time, if you are no longer happy working there or want to look for a new opportunity. Before you do quit your job, you should be careful that you are not breaching your contract by doing so, as you may be signed up to stay on for a certain amount of time.
You should also think carefully about whether your situation requires you to leave your job, as you may struggle to get a good reference if you leave suddenly, or even find another job. Here are some of the reasons where it may be completely necessary for you to leave your job.
- If your job is dangerous. Obviously if you have signed up for a job which you knew was dangerous in the first place then this should not be a consideration. However, if you feel that the way your company runs is dangerous, or that you are at risk for any reason, you should consider leaving.
- If you are not being listened to. You should have as much say as management on certain issues and if there is something which is affecting you at your level, management should be happy to hear you out and make changes if needs be. If this is not the case then leaving is a better option than sticking around.
- If you are being bullied. If you are being bullied by another employee or by management, and nothing can be done to resolve the situation (or the company isn’t willing to step in to resolve the situation) then it may be better for you to leave. You may also have a case for compensation.
- If the company is doing anything illegal. Although you are less likely to have action taken against you than the management of your company, it is better not to be involved at all in illegal activities.
