HC Deb 23 February 1978 vol 944 cc772-3W
Mr. Churchill

asked the Secretary of State for Employment what is the maximum period for which an employee may be statutorily required to continue in his employment after giving notice in writing to terminate his contract of employment.

Mr. Harold Walker

The period of notice which an employee is statutorily required to give is one week. However, an individual contract of employment may require a longer period of notice to be given.
