Can an employer force an employee to leave if they have not given official notice, but have verbally stated they are considering leaving?
Hi all, If I tell my employer that I’m considering leaving (I have another offer), but I don’t give them official written notice yet… Can they force me out later if the offer falls through? (I need a visa to work in the UK, so it should be fine, but it’s never 100% guaranteed — that’s my only concern). I have worked for my current employer for more than two years and have only had positive feedback on my work. I like my colleagues and want to give them as much “unofficial” notice as possible, but I’m worried the company would try to fire me in future if my other offer didn’t work out for whatever reason. Thanks in advance
