Issue the correct periods of notice

Withdrawing notice


Once an employer or employee gives notice, it cannot be withdrawn unless both parties agree.

Thus if an employer gives notice to an employee and later changes their mind, the employee can still consider themselves as dismissed as from the date of termination specified by the notice.

See our guides on dismissing employees and when an employee resigns.
