Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
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 your employer?
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. Can I just check what specifically you wanted to know about the notice period?
Hello, I am not sure if you saw my query above: Can I just check what specifically you wanted to know about the notice period?
Notice periods are firstly defined under your contract and in the absence of such, by law. So whatever the contract states you must give or receive, that would be the first point of reference. If your contract is silent on this matter, you must give at least a week, and the employer must give you a week for each full year of employment, up to a maximum of 12 weeks
Does this answer your query?
