Making Sense of Employment Law
Termination of Employment
A contract of employment may be ended by mutual agreement or by the employer or employee giving the required notice of termination. Your employer may terminate your employment on the grounds of misconduct, capability, redundancy, breach of a statutory provision or because of "some other substantial reason". They should comply with the ACAS Code of Practice.
Other than for gross misconduct, the statutory minimum* notice periods that your employer must give you are:
- Under 2 years’ service - one week
- 2 years’ service - 2 weeks
- Then one additional week for each year worked up to 12 weeks for 12 years’ service
* your contract of employment may require your employer to give longer periods of notice than these.
