Hello, my name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. Why are they terminating his employment?
you still there ben
Yes, and the initial period of employment was he an employee or self employed?
he was an employee
Does he have a contract and does it stipulate a contractual notice period on termination?
not signed any contracts
When an employee’s employment is terminated they would be entitled to a minimum notice period. This would either be what is mentioned in their contract, which cannot be less than the statutory minimum entitlement or in the absence of a contract – it will just be that statutory minimum entitlement. The law gives employees minimum notice rights based on how long they have been employed for a company on a continuous basis. So for every full year of continuous employment they are entitled to a week’s notice, up to a maximum of 12. If this person has at least 5 full years’ continuous service then they would be entitled to 5 weeks’ notice as a minimum by law.
