I signed a contract proper (in 2007) that stated I needed to serve 2 months' notice. The parent company has given me a new portfolio (no pay or benefit increment) and I was made to sign a new appointment letter that briefly states that I need to serve "1 semester notice". (education line). Most new employers will need to take in new staff at short notice. I have just received news that I might be offered a new job elsewhere, but need to join in 2 month's time. Do I fall back on the contract proper or just a letter of appointment which is just briefly written with no description of what is the length of "i semester"?
Thank you for offering insight to a desperate person who needs to leave the present company.
