How long have you worked for your employer?

Did you sign a contract? If so, what does the contract state in the termination section?

I’ve worked for the employer for 14 months. 4 weeks notice

I have worked for them for 14 months. Signed a contract 4 weeks ago and have a 4 week notice period
Expert:  Mo Tax Expert replied 14 days ago.

You would not be working during the 1 month in lieu of notice.

Hence it's basically the same thing.

Customer: replied 14 days ago.
No l wouldn’t be required to work.

This would give you a month to find another employment.

I hope this completes your answer today.
