Hi all, Hope you are all enjoying your summer break- the last couple of weeks have gone quick and it won’t be long until we welcome the students back for the start of the new academic year. I have just returned from my holiday abroad where I received an email from one of my HoDs informing me that they are resigning from their role with immediate effect and won’t be returning in September. I have contacted the colleague, who may I add , has worked at the school for 11 years and they’ve informed me that they have decided to leave the education sector due to increased stress and has already started a new job working for the NHS. They’ve clearly breached their contract of employment here on two occasions where: - They are failing to provide sufficient notice to terminate their employment. - They have commenced / undertook employment without permission from myself (HT) or the CoG. I’m looking at taking this further, just wondered if anyone had previous experience dealing with a situation like this? The department members of where the colleague was from, were not aware that the HoD had planned to leave.
