Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
There is only one contract. I just read online that there is a statutory minimum notice period :
There are two types of notice period: statutory and contractual. Statutory notice is the minimum legal notice that can be given. Employers should give the employee:
one week's notice if the employee has been employed by the employer continuously for one month or more, but for less than two yearstwo weeks' notice if the employee has been employed by the employer continuously for two years, and one additional week's notice for each further complete year of continuous employment, up to a maximum of 12 weeks. For example if an employee has worked for 5 years then they are entitled to 5 weeks' notice.
In our contract the notice period is 2 months. My question is wether I can apply the statutory minimum notice period or if I still need to apply the notice stated in the contract?
That's what I thought but wanted a confirmation.
Thanks a lot Ben.
Have a good day,
