What are the statutory periods of notice? (different to contractual notice)


The statutory minimum notice to be given by an employee who has been continuously employed for one month or more to terminate his or her contract is not less than one week.

Where the employee has been employed for one month but less than two years, the statutory minimum to be provided by the employer is one week’s notice. After two years’ service this rises to one week for each year of continuous service, although a maximum of 12 weeks’ notice applies where the employee has been employed for 12 years or more.
