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.
You can take as long as needed and a couple of extra days is not usually an issue but the employer can set a deadline if they want to and if they are making an offer – withdraw it if you have not replied by their deadline. There is nothing in law which stipulates a minimum notice period you just be given in these situations.
If you work your notice period then you continue accruing holidays during that time. However, if you are being paid in lieu of notice, you will not accrue any holidays.
Your employer can only force you to take PILON if there is a contractual right for them to do this, and if there isn’t, then they would be acting in breach of contract and you can pursue them for anything you would have been entitled to or accrued had you been allowed to work your notice period.
I trust this has answered your query.

If you still need me to clarify anything else, please reply on here and I will assist as best as I can. Thank you
the notice period starts once you have been issued with notice of termination - I presume this will be confirmed once you say no to PILON and they will then issue you with formal notice of termination
When you say can you ask to withdraw it, withdraw what specifically - the offer?
there is nothing stopping you asking him but I doubt he would agree - why would he expose himself? WP labels are used when a party is making genuine attempts to settle an ongoing dispute so if this is not seen as a genuine attempt at settlement, it may lose the WP protection anyway, regardless of what it has been labelled as
many thanks for the kind feedback and all the best for now
