What obligations do I have if I want to terminate my employment contract?
As an employee, you can hand in your resignation at any time, but there are still some legal obligations you need to think about with a contract termination. One of the most common reasons for resignation is to take up employment elsewhere, however, you will need to give due notice if this is the case.
You should make it clear that you are formally resigning, which is best carried out in writing. Employees need to look at their contract of employment to see how long their notice period is.
What are the reasons that my employer has terminated my contract?
There are five main reasons why your employer may choose to terminate your contract:
- Conduct - if you have broken the terms of your employment, for example, by missing work or stealing from your employer
- Capability - if you cannot do your job property, for example, if you do not work well with your colleagues
- Redundancy - if there is not enough work for you to do at the company
- If continuing your employment would break the law - for example, if you are a driver and you incur a driving ban
- Other substantial reasons - such as if you have been put in prison
