Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, I’m Ben, a UK lawyer and will be dealing with your case today. I may also need to ask some questions to determine the legal position.
How long have you worked for this employer?
Can you please upload the clause in question?
Thank you. I will get back to you with my answer as soon as I can, which will be at some point today. The system will notify you when this happens. Please do not reply in the meantime as this may unnecessarily delay my response. Many thanks.
Thank you. The notice period is no different to any other period of employment – you are still employed by them and still under the contract of employment you have in place. Therefore, if they have a lay off clause, which they do, they can invoke that and place you on unpaid leave (subject tor the minimum guarantee pay allowed by law) for all or part of the notice period.
I appreciate that. All the best
