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.
Are you the employee in question?
Thank you. If the original fixed-term contract continued beyond the set end date, then it would have simply continued on a tolling, day-by-day basis, until either side took formal steps to terminate it. Therefore, all original terms and conditions would have continued to apply on an ongoing basis, apart from the term abut the end date, which would have basically no longer be valid and it would have just continued indefinitely until terminated using the contractually-bound notice period. Therefore, yes, the original notice period for termination by either side would still apply, despite the fixed term contract having gone past its initial defined end date.
Does this answer your query?
if there is gross misconduct it could be instant dismissal, otherwise they have to give the required notice period, or at least pay her for it.
