Resignation Breaking Verbal Agreement - No Contract

Hi There,

I've been employed by this family since I graduated college less than a year ago. Upon hiring me, the mother hesitated stating she was nervous that I would get a real job and leave them high and dry after a few months.

Awful resignation experience

I have been working for a family for almost 1.5 years now. I've always felt super underpaid (I make $10 an hour and do grocery shopping/errands/children's laundry/all bedding/et.) but I found out last Saturday that the government was giving me enough aid to go back to school full time. I gave my notice the following Tuesday (July 19) and let them know that my last day would be the Friday before school started. It ended up being a 3.5 weeks notice (25 days), but my boss flipped out. First she started telling me I wasn't allowed to quit.

Handing in my notice today

Hi all

I recently posted on this forum looking for advice about an employment situation that was less than ideal for me. I received helpful feedback and am preparing to hand in my two week notice today. I have already secured a new position with a law firm, as I feel it is time to put my degree to use. Any last minute tips or words of encouragement would be appreciated. I have never resigned from any position before.

Thank you!

Advice on Giving Notice?

I've been a nanny for a family for quite a while (several years) and I've recently given my 6 months' notice. The problem is, they have a big trip planned at the end of it and would like me to go, and I just am not in a place to join them. A job hunt, family commitments, and other personal things are grounding me at home and when I mentioned not going they seemed less than enthusiastic. Is it appropriate to be firm that I can't include the trip in my notice? And if so, how would other nannies suggest I bring it up with them?


Starting to feel incredibly overwhelmed and need all of your expert advice! I've been nannying for 2 years, but 5 months with my currently family of a 4yo and 1.5yo twins. ND has been "working from home" recently, input that in quotes for a reason...he's watching Netflix and playing video games in his downstairs office! He answers some phone calls and the majority of the time is spent leisurely.
