Staff Handbook - Notice Periods Policy

Updated: Dec 18, 2022

Regarding the Notice Period, just how many days do need to be provided? I think this to be a common myth held by many employers or employees.

Contracts to be in writing and to include provision for termination

According to Section 10 of the Employment Act of 1955, if the duration of employment is going to be more than one month, the employment contract must be in writing (i.e., printed in black and white).

Additionally, a notice of termination must be included in the contract. That means that in every written contract of service, a clause that outlines the process by which any party may terminate the agreement at any time must be included.

Notice of termination of the contract

Section 12 of the Employment Act 1955, either party to a contract of service may at any time give to the other party notice of his intention to terminate such contract of service

The length of such notice shall be the same for both employer and employee and shall be determined by a provision made in writing for such notice in the terms of the contract of service, or, in the absence of such provision in writing, shall not be less than

Non-EA Employees

This Notice Periods Policy sets down the circumstances in which an employee will be required to work their notice period and the employer’s expectations of the employee during the notice period in the event of the different scenarios of resignation, dismissal, redundancy and retirement.

The Notice Periods Policy includes the following:

  1. Introduction

  2. Principles

  3. Notice Periods

  4. Rights and Obligations During the Notice Period

  5. Return of Company Property

  6. Garden Leave

  7. Pay in Lieu of Notice

  8. Holiday During Notice Periods

  9. Deductions from Final Salary










本《通知期政策》规定了在辞职、解雇、裁员和退休等不同情况下,员工需要在通知期内工作的情况以及雇主对员工在通知期内的期望。 当然,这里我要说的是“通知”是冷冰冰的法律,而我们在企业工作,连接的是企业里的人和事,做的是事、谈的是情。 所以不管是企业还是个人,法律是底线,但是我们更应该在底线之上,有情感的对待员工,有温度的对待企业。 而员工即使离职,也应尽其义务:-

  • 虽然说从劳工法上来更偏向保护弱势群体,所以员工离职的话仅仅是通知企业,

  • 但并不代表员工能够任性操作,其中也有员工需要尽到的义务。


  • 因为在实际操作中,很多时候存在着员工“蒸发”导致自动离职的情况、又或者;

  • 找到下家了,不配合工作交接马上就走的情况,对于企业会造成管理风险。
