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.
I agree it is not a very well written clause but from it says it would appear that he is only required to give them a week's notice because the clause specifically says for service between 2-4 years' service and he does not meet that criteria. Also the ambiguity of contractual clauses would usually be determined in the favour of the employee, as they are the ones in the weaker bargaining position and it is the employer's actions that have created that uncertainty, so even if it was challenged further in court, which I would very much doubt, the likelihood is that he would be the one in the right anyway.
