Sharing Rule:

Notice is required for terminating all contracts except those for a fixed-term period or for specific tasks (sec. 14, EA), and except when the employee is summarily dismissed (sec. 17, EA).


 


Explanation:

Notice is required for terminating all contracts except those for a fixed-term period or for specific tasks (sec. 14, EA), and except when the employee is summarily dismissed (sec. 17, EA). The relevant notice periods are as follows:

  • for workers paid daily, one day’s notice;
  • for contracts where wages are paid periodically at an interval shorter than a month, notice equivalent to this interval; and
  • for contracts where wages are paid at intervals longer than a month, 28 days’ notice.

Employees declared redundant are entitled to one month’s notice or wages in lieu. When a greater notice period has been agreed to by the parties, this notice period prevails. The employer can give the employee payment in lieu of notice (sec. 16, EA).

According to sec. 16A of the EA, an employee declared redundant should be entitled to severance pay at the rate of not less than 15 days’ pay for each completed year of service.
