Its now over a week that I was told I was suspended because I only swore once at my manager.... I have had no reply in writing,reading the procedure it will be suspended without pay... I need money to pay bills... I am asking can I leave without notice while suspended to start another job?.....I think it best not to tell my new Employer just to say hours have been cut or work is short.
You are free to accept other work, or to look for other work, while you are suspended. You have no legal obligation to give prior notice to your present employer. Be cautious about misrepresenting the circumstances of your sudden availability for employment, however. In many circumstances, once the true circumstances of your departure from previous employment becomes known -- and it often does -- there may be a disapproving reaction from a new employer who feels that the initial statements were dishonest, even where what was not fully disclosed would not have been a problem at the time if it had been disclosed.
My responses to questions on Avvo are never intended as legal advice and must not be relied upon as legal advice. I give legal advice only in the course of an attorney-client relationship. Exchange of information through Avvo's Questions forum does not establish an attorney-client relationship with me. That relationship is established only by individual consultation and execution of a written agreement for legal services.
