Ending Employment


An employee is obliged by law to give a minimum of one weeks’ notice if they wish to terminate their employment.  However, if the contract provides for a longer notice, they should give that notice period.

Where an employee gives a longer notice period than is required in the contract of employment, the employer can either accept the longer notice period or indicate that they do not wish the employee to give longer than the contractual period. In this instance the contract would come to an end when the normal contractual notice period has been served.
