You must be given a notice period before your employment ends.
The statutory redundancy notice periods are:
- at least one week’s notice if employed between one month and 2 years;
- one week’s notice for each year if employed between 2 and 12 years;
- 12 weeks’ notice if employed for 12 years or more.
Your employer may give you more than the statutory minimum, but they cannot give you less.
Your employer should either:
- pay you through your notice period
- pay you in lieu of notice depending on your circumstances
Payment in Lieu of Notice
Your employment can be ended without notice if ‘Payment in Lieu of Notice’ is included in your contract. Your employer will pay you instead of giving you a notice period.
You get all of the basic pay you would have received during the notice period. You may get extras such as pension contributions or private health care insurance if they are in your contract.
