Im a teaching assistant working on a pro rata basis. I notified my line manager that I wish to leave two weeks ago. (legally our notice period is 4 weeks but usually they can let you go earlier-after two weeks iv been told) Iv been advised by our business manager then, that I shouldnt give my notice in until the end of the summer term (so give it in late july saying im resigning end of august) which is good advice, so that I get my summer pay. However, I currently feel that I cannot take it anymore due to my own mental health issues coming back. I am not really that needed as we are just doing random post corona duties, therefore my supervisor would definitely not mind me going earlier than end of summer. My question is: if I quit before the end of term, am I still not entitled to the summer pay, since it is worked out on pro rata basis (so monthly they were taking £100 off my wage). If the case is that I am still entitled to summer pay, I should have given my notice period two weeks ago and they’d probably let me go about nowish (two weeks is the usual they let people off on). But thinking Im not entitled to it if I dont stay until the end (which could be true-but not sure if thats how it legally works?) I havent handed in my notice at all yet. I tried to work the rest of the term but I cannot do it. My only other option is to go on sick leave for three weeks until the end of term and then hand notice in for end of august, but I think that looks a bit rude and obvious. What should I do in my situation?
