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.
So does she not want to continue and renew the contract at all or is this not an option?
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. This appears to be a fixed-term contract which is where the agreement is to work for a fixed period of time, or up to a fixed date. Once the fixed term comes to an end, the contract will automatically come to an end as well and no notice would be required. Please see here:
Ending a fixed-term contract
Fixed-term contracts will normally end automatically when they reach the agreed end date. The employer doesn’t have to give any notice.
So she can wait until the end date and then just treat the contract as being finished, unless the employer takes steps to extend it. She is not expected, or required, to give any notice to leave the job.
