Can I be sued for quitting my job?

#1
Hi

Off to basic this sept.

I've been f**ked about a bit by a company. They've contracted me out at shit salary when I've got a massive exp. in IT but knowing the area I live in has barely any jobs they refused to offer me a decent salary.

I had a barney with the line manager there and said I'm not going to stay there (a lie - I can't afford to not turn up) upon which suddenly the funds were available and he's offering me a post to start on the 17th.

Now, lads, I'm not gonna lie to ya - I intend to work 2 weeks, go on holiday for 2 weeks, collect my salary and **** off to basic.

I've got no qualms about doing this for any whingers out there. It's a big corporate company that like to contract people in for **** all so they receive no pensions and cant take sick leave and frankly one months pay on the salary i've just been offered is the thick end of 2k after tax etc. leaving me money worries free during basic.

May seem odd asking on this site.....but I'm sure some booties have been in a similar position where they've "had" to jack in a job. Can I be sued?

They can ask you to pay back any holidays you've taken and not accrued but if you're going away and they don't know where you're going then I wouldn't worry about it, glad you're not watching my back in the near future, you're a bit unreliable. Good luck with your training, you'll be f*cked if you end up having to go back home after being kicked out or discharged.

are you signing any kind of contract with them that stipulates you will be providing them with your services until a certain date? or is just on an ongoing basis with notice periods on both sides? if the former, you may have problems. if the latter, as long as you observe the notice period then why should there be any problems? they might get soggy and hard to light if it comes to rehiring you, but if you're off to basic is that a problem?

It is a little unusual, especially at this time of the morning. :)
Fingers on lips, I am not well and the Huff keeps snoring.

Hope you're better, and normal services resumes, soon.

Shut up you judgemental prick
.
I got made redundant in Jan after 4 years (the business went into admin), and I've had to take a job in my home town to

A) To give my younger brother (who is only 19) a place to live

&

B) put him through university.

Sorry mate if I have to choose between - screwing over some massive c0cksucker company that has done **** all for me

and

-having more money to support myself and my only family member I'll choose the latter everytime. So how exactly am I unreliable?

Thanks for your answer

As far as I know it'll just be a standard 9-5 employee contract. I'm not worried about being rehired - I have 7 years experience coding in IT and have saved up enough to not have to worry about my brother or myself and once I'm off to basic it doesn't matter.

Should I have to return to civvie street my quals and previous companies I've worked for will do absolutely fine but I can't see that happening - I've spent the last 4 years putting money aside ad training so my bro can follow his dreams and now have enough so I can follow mine in the army :)
