I employ a number of careworkers in my own home, to provide support for my disabled daughter. Last week one of them wanted to give me 2 months verbal notice. She said she was leaving because of the way I treated her (disrespectfully). I was slightly taken aback, as two days prior she had been telling me that she really enjoyed working here. I said to her, if it is so bad here, leave now. (or something similar) I have just had an email from her saying that because I didn't let her work out her notice, she is entitled to financial compensation. I am confused, as she walked out. What is my legal position?
