I’ve decided to resign from my job. I’m on good terms with my employer, however I’m just REALLY bored and I have a better offer. The job itself is pretty dead-end anyway.
Our team is really understaffed and my leaving will just make it more so. So in other words, the company will probably be pissed.
Another thing. When we all recieved raises 5 months ago, they never went into effect. We are supposed to recieve them retro-actively in a couple of weeks.
So my question:
Can the company refuse to pay me the retroactive raise? Is there any legal recourse (its not a lot of money, but its enough).
Can I and should I make the company sign something that lists what I am owed (back pay, unused vacation time) and releasing my from any liability resulting from anything I worked?
Companies often make employees sign similar statements upon leaving.
All comments and suggestions are welcome.
