Good day all,
I have a question that I do hope someone with labour law experience can answer.
I am currently employed at a large company. In July of this year I was offered a position at another company, to start on 5th september, 2012. I tendered my resignation via email with my current company on 1st August, 2012, to finish on 30th August, 2012. So far so good.
Unfortunately, due to unforseen circumstances, I was subsequently no longer able to accept the new position, so I withdrew my resignation on 20th August, 2012 again via email.
I had a grievance hearing 13th September, 2012, wherein I was informed by my superior that my withdrawal of resignation was in fact NOT accepted but that my superior was giving me until end November to "get my attitude adjusted" as they have a new person starting in my position at the beginning of December.
My questions are as follows:
1: If my withdrawal of resignation was NOT accepted, should I not have finished at the end of August and been notified of this?
2: What recourse do I have since I have basically carried on as if I had NEVER even resigned to begin with?
