Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Just a follow up to this question from last week,
So if we leave in the contract a requirement for 2 weeks notice (as required by our client where there work is being performed), can we still terminate at-will, at any time, for any reason? Would we need further language in the employment contract as to under what terms the employment could be terminated? Should we take out the at-will statement entirely or can we leave it in?
Thank you for your response,
Also, is there anything further that we need to do agree to give the employee in order to require them giving us 2 weeks notice (i.e. do we have to give them some kind of benefit in order for us to require 2 weeks notice from them?)
Thank you so much for breaking this down!
Just verifying. So by them signing the employment agreement and agreeing to its terms, including giving us 2 weeks notice, we can hold them to that 2 week notice requirement? Would we claim breach of the contract if they did not give us 2 weeks?
