Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hi Ben, thank you. He has worked for us since Sept 2003. He contract states "You are required to give 1 month's written notice. The Company will give you 1 month's notice during the first 4 years employment and an additional 1 weeks notice for each complete year of service thereafter up to a maximum of 12 weeks"
He is not required to work his notice period and he can remain on sick leave throughout the full notice period, however as we discussed previously he may still be entitled to receive his full pay during that time because the rules state that if you are only obliged to give him the statutory minimum notice period on termination, he is entitled to receive his full pay for that period, even if on sick leave at the time. Also his holidays must be paid at his normal rate as well
Ok thank you. So in short we will owe him a months full pay & accrued holiday to the 4th September (his resignation letter was dated 4th August). Thanks
