Query - notice period

Discussion in 'Personal' started by iheartpbandj, Jan 11, 2011.

  1. Firstly apologies for posting here, I would normally post elsewhere but am looking for an answer asap.

    I am employed on a temporary contract which I want to leave and it states on the contract 'subject to the statutory periods of notice, which the council requires to give, you are entitled to receive from and give to the council one weeks notice of termination of employment, exclusive of vacation periods.'

    From this I assume that I'd that I only had to give one week notice, however the council are saying I have to give four weeks.

    Can I say that I am not able to do the four and would prefer to do the one as it states is a requirement in the contract?

    If your contract says one week, then it is one week.

    Serves them right for having such a stupid contract.

    If the schools needs changed, do you think they would give you a month?
