How much notice to leave a part-time job?
I've been working at a part-time job since July. I had a Job interview and now they want me to start next week. Is one week notice okay considering I've only been there 4 months and only work two days per week. ~ No contract was signed. ~ Very laid back position. ~ Only work on Thursday's and Fridays. ~ Another part-timer works Monday- Wednesday. ~There was no probation period and the training period was only 8 hours. *Found my own answer, apparently as I was told by a few -- 1 week notice is all I need to give. Thanks everyone Individual Terminations Normally, the legislation provides for increases in the individual notice of termination period based on the years of service of the employee. For example, the provisions may require one week's notice for an employee who has been employed for three months or more but less than two years; two weeks' notice where employed for two years or more but less than five; four weeks' notice where employed five years or more but less than 10; and eight weeks' notice where employed 10 years or more.

The norm tends to be one month's notice, but you should have been given a contract of employment which will state the notice period on it. Having said that, it's highly unlikely they would do anything about you only giving a weeks notice given the short period of time you've been there. The other thing you should... More

I would say give two weeks notice, but one is okay if you really want to leave. It depends on how important you consider the job to be in terms of future reference.

Two weeks is the norm but go and talk with your boss. It's only part-time and if you are moving to full time I doubt that you will have any serious ramifications from departing early.

2 weeks is the standard, but since you are a part timer it should be fine to give them one week, just make sure you tell them before they make next week's schedule (if the job works like that..)

Did you sign any agreement for the part time job? It should stated there. But it's really depends. Usually two weeks notice is enough for part timer.

Today is Wednesday, and if they want you to start Monday, that's only two days' notice to your current employer. Regardless of how many hours/week you work, the credible thing to do is give 2 weeks' notice. It takes that long for an employer to post an advert to replace you, do the interviewing and coordinate the... More

it depends on if you have a contract and if you want a reference, anything from im going and i wont be back, to a month if you have a contract that does state you have to work notice you can use holiday time and change shifts but you have a new job so they will probably be lenient with you
