When an employee leaves a job they usually have to work a notice period. 

A notice period is the amount of time an employee has to work for their employer after they resign, are dismissed or made redundant.

How much notice they get depends on:

  • how long they have worked for their employer
  • what's in their employment contract
  • whether they have been dismissed, made redundant or have resigned
