Making Sense of Employment Law

How much notice should you give and how much notice are you entitled to?

Both the employer and employee are normally entitled to a minimum period of notice of termination of employment.

The statutory minimum an employer must give are:

  • less than 2 years' service - 1 week
  • 2 years' service - 2 weeks
  • then one additional week for each year worked up to 12 weeks for 12 years' service
  • 12 years' service and above - 12 weeks

Notice entitlement is one of the main terms of an employment contract, and should therefore be included in your contracts of employment, which you should provide within two months of employment commencing. Although the above notice periods are the minimum by law, your contracts of employment may have a longer period of notice.
