yesterday or colleague said that I don't need to comply with the notice period under this circumstances, do you agree?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
sorry, did you get my previous text?
Expert:  Ben Jones replied 1 year ago.
It is correct that if you are not being paid then the employer is acting in breach of contract and as such the whole contract could become void. That means the notice period clause in it would also become void and you could terminate the contract with immediate effect and quoit having to serve the notice period. So a letter could simply state that as you are not being paid as per the terms of the contract out would like to terminate it with immediate effect due to the employer’s serious breach of contract. Also mention that any notice period would not be enforceable as the whole contract has now become void and its terms are no longer applicable. Hope this helps

it helps indeed. would you strongly recommend that I take a letter? I have a good relationship with my employee and would like to friendly end things.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I will bring a letter and ask her to sign. If she refuses.... What should I do?
Expert:  Ben Jones replied 1 year ago.
Yes bring a letter. She does not need to sign it you just hand it in. If she refuses to accept your position then it is for her to pursue this but it is highly unlikely she will actually go to the courts over this
