My husband joined a company 2 months ago and after begging him to draw up a contract he received one yesterday where the his boss tells him that he needs to give 3 months notice should he resign!


Is this legal, I read online that the maximum notice is 12 weeks, but is this reasonable for someone who hasn't even worked there 3 months?


Thank you

While there is a minimum period of notice required for employees it is quite common for longer periods to be stipulated in contracts of employment. Where I work some of the senior managers and directors are on 3 or 6 months notice.


Acas - Home states :"However, the employer or the employee will be entitled to a longer period of notice than the statutory minimum if this is provided for in the contract of employment."


Hope this is helpful.


Kind regards
