What kind of job do you do and why do they require a years notice?
Hello, I hope you are well, what is your job and why do they require a years notice period?
Ok well firstly, I would speak with your management and see if you can come to some kind of agreement to waive the one year notice on your contract. If you can come to a mutual agreement then you can render this clause in the contract void or overridden. However, if you cannot come to an agreement then you could be in breach of contract, there could be a claim against you to cover the costs of replacing you. However, when you speak with your boss then if you want you can suggest that the contract notice period may be unfair (legally) there is case law to support that employers cannot enforce unfair contractual notice periods. However, it is entirely up to you how you wish to move forward, but I would suggest that coming to an agreement which can override your contract will be the best and easiest way forward. If you do come to an agreement then do get it in writing.
