• An employee has a statutory right to notice where the employer terminates his/her contract (except in cases of summary dismissal for gross misconduct).

  • An employee may be entitled by his/her contract of employment to notice that is longer than the applicable statutory notice.

  • The period of notice to which an employee is entitled, and which is needed in order for the employer to terminate an employee’s contract, must be stipulated in the employee’s written statement of terms and conditions, and must also comply with the statutory requirements as to minimum notice.

  • Employees who have less than one month’s service may be entitled to reasonable notice.
