How profitable to quit
Do not let your employer confuse you, let alone make you stay at work if you want to quit. Sometimes management deliberately delays the process, trying to find a way to dismiss an employee as profitably as possible: for example, deprive him of a well-deserved bonus, etc. If you have refused to accept the application, send it by registered mail or invite witnesses who will confirm that you are being held in the workplace forcibly.
Dismiss only when you already have another job or at least an additional temporary way to earn money. Leaving the organization without plans for the future is unprofitable. Start your search for a new place before submitting your application, but do not advertise it in order to avoid unpleasant situations. Take your time not to be left without a livelihood. But do not hesitate, because you have to warn your employer about leaving in advance.
Consider the features of the organization in which you are currently working to find the most suitable moment for dismissal. For example, if you receive the highest salary in the summer due to the specifics of your work, and by winter the salary is significantly reduced, leave in early autumn. Focus also on the time of payment of bonuses, bonuses, etc. leave after their receipt, but not before. Do not count on the integrity of the employer.
Choose the most profitable way to dismiss. The main options, as a rule, are two: of their own accord and by agreement of the parties. In the first case, you will be able to withdraw your application until the time of termination of the employment contract and remain if the supervisor raises you in the position or increases your salary. However, when you quit, you will receive only a settlement. In the second case, you can also require additional severance pay, the amount of which sometimes turns out to be significant.
