Hi sir or madam,

I need some advice from you. Currently I am working in a company for more than 1 year and I am still under probation. At first, they told me that probation period will be 6 months and extend if needed. But after I work until now, I didn't receive any letter or email of extend my probation period or confirming my probation. In this situation, am I still consider as probationer, right? In my offer letter, it only mention the notice period for permanent staff is 2 months but not for probationer. 

1. I ask my HR regarding the notice period for probationer and they told me that is 2 months. I told them it did not stated in offer letter but then they told me that it was inside company handbook. I didn't received any documents regarding company handbook on the first day I join this company and until now.

In this situation, if I want to resign, is it I no need to give 2 months notice period since I am not getting the information since I join this company?

kindly please advice me on this. I really need help.

Yes, you still have to give 2 months notice unless there is a different notice period specifically for those under probation.

If the offer letter didn't stated anything regarding how many months notice period to be given of resignation for permanent staff or staff under probation, is it I can leave immediately upon my submission of resignation letter? 

If the notice period stated inside company handbook is 2 months for employee and I didn't received it since the day I join this company, is it I can ignore this?

Looking forward of your reply. Thank you very much.

If you leave immediately without giving the 2 months notice, they may sue you for 2 months salary for it.
