Resignation

Where do you stand if you hand in ur notice in writing and a day later ask to retract it? do I have any rights?

If you say "I quit", it's accepted that you may have said it in the heat of the moment, and you can retract it afterwards.

If you put it in writing, it's assumed you've given it a lot of thought, and you know what you're doing. Unless it states otherwise in your contract, your employer has no obligation to take you back.

However, just go and ask them if you can retract your resignation, explain why you have changed your mind, and whether or not you'll be doing it again. There's every chance they will be happy for you to stay. I've had staff resign before to pursue a different career, then change their minds, and I had no reason to insist they left; I didn't have to find a replacement, I knew they were good employees, and I was glad they preferred to stay with us.

Just ask, petal! :)

Depending on how long you've been working for that company, you should talk to your boss and tell him the whole situation that forced you to write it. He might understand it, who knows. Good Luck! :)
