I am currently trying to go for a HoD job and my school ask for one full academic term as notice. My friend has just handed in his notice with the leaving date as the 31st of August. The school are saying that he will not get any money after the last day of term, even though he has worked the full year. Is this legal? There is no mention of this in the contract and this seems like a 25% docking of pay? We have what appears to be an annualised hours contract. They are also trying a number of other things that seem extremely dodgy.
