Reasonable notice describes what employees are entitled to at the time of the termination of their employment. The law states that, unless an employee has agreed in an employment contract to something else (and that contract is enforceable), employees whose employment is terminated without cause are entitled to a be provided with “reasonable notice” of the termination of their employment. Reasonable notice is essentially enough support for the employee to find alternative comparable employment.
While there is no fixed/specific number, it is not unreasonable to expect that an employee could receive between 3 and 5 weeks per year of service (with more for short service), up to a maximum of twenty-four months.
In most cases, the most influential factors in determining reasonable notice include the employee’s age, length of service, position (and related responsibilities), and the availability of similar employment.
