How to quit your job without falling out with your employer, and how to claim accident at work compensation if you need to
It is often not a big problem if you want to leave your job. All employers understand that the job you are doing fits in with your own specific life goals, so that you will have to leave when you have fulfilled a certain goal and need to find another challenge. In other cases, it may simply be that you have moved as far up the chain as you possibly can, and now it is time for you to move to a job where there is further progression for you.
However, in other cases your employer may be less than happy that you want to move away from your job, and in this case you want to try to keep them happy so that they will provide a good reference, and so that you can leave on positive terms.
- Don’t be too negative. If there are valid reasons for you wanting to quit your job that you feel your employer should know, then you should tell them so that they can change the way they run the company to stop others from leaving. But you should try to be polite and positive about this so as not to leave in a negative light.
- Accept your own failings. If there is a reason that you are leaving which is partly your own fault, or down to your own way of thinking, accept this and let your employer know that you accept it when you leave. This way your employer will not feel ‘blamed’ for your deciding to leave.
- Give plenty of notice. Most contracts will state that you need to give a month’s notice before you leave. But if you know that you are leaving well in advance you should let your employer know as soon as you do. This way they will be able to arrange cover sooner rather than later, or even get someone in whilst you are still there so that you can train them for your position.
