Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.
When were you actually issued with formal notice of termination?
Hi there, sorry I was offline when you replied and have only just returned.
Generally, your notice period would start to run from the date you are issued with notice of termination. It is entirely possible for part of your notice to be spent ‘working’, and part of it being paid in lieu of notice. The working part does not have to be actually working and you could potentially remain off sick during that time but it will be taken off your notice period. One thing I would say is that the notice only rally should start from the date it was communicated to you, so from the date of the letter, that being 11 Sept. It will only buy you a few days though, it won’t change the fact that your notice can start to run from that date even if you are off sick. So the employer will be correct in what they have done, apart from you could try and claim an extra few days for the fact their notice of termination was issued on the 11th.
