What are the key legal points regarding the termination of employment?
If a contract of employment is terminated by mutual consent, is an employee still entitled to claim unfair dismissal?
Can an employee claim unfair dismissal on expiry of his or her fixed-term contract of employment?
How much notice is a resigning employee required to give his or her employer?
An employee can resign at any time by giving
proper notice under his or her contract of employment. Although there is no
legal requirement for a resignation to be in writing, in order to avoid any
confusion over whether or not an employee has resigned it may be beneficial for
an employer to include a clause in employees' contracts of employment stating
that resignations must be in writing. Once a resignation has been given it
cannot be withdrawn other than with the employer's express permission, or where
it was given in the heat of the moment and then speedily retracted.
