Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, my name is Ben, I am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.
So what does your actual contract say regarding notice?
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.
Many thanks for your patience. Whilst your contract may only state that you are entitled to a month’s notice on termination, that cannot be less than your minimum statutory entitlement by law. In your case, you are correct that it should be as a minimum 8 weeks because you have been there for 8 years. The employer cannot give you less than that, no matter what the contract says. You are due your statutory notice as a minimum, and they can then give you longer than that if they wanted to, but not less.
Does this answer your query?
All the best
