Resignation during Probation - Notice or no Notice

2017-10-25 23:47:23

I am one month into a 3 month probationary period with my employer.

Since this is a time for each of us to consider the fit for the position, I have come to the conclusion this particular employer is not a good fit for me.

The handbook states the employer can dismiss the employee at any time for no reason during the probationary period, with or without notice.

Does the same hold true if I as an employee wish to exit? Notice required?

That depends on your locale, local laws, your contract, and the company culture.

If the employer is free to fire you at any time during probation with no notice, then I would assume that you are free to do the same and leave with no notice.
