Good AfternoonMy name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question. Please understand this is not legal advise Please understand this is not legal advice but a guide to assist you.What does the termination clause say in it?If it says that either party can terminate the contract then you can only be paid until the date it is terminated and not till the end. You have to look at the contract as a whole.

Afternoon Leon,
So after looking at the contract it does not state anything about being terminated earlier. At this stage he has only had a verbal 1 month notice and is yet to receive a written. Should we have it in writing?

Good AfternoonAnything you so should be in writing. If the contract us silent on termination then you would have to rely on the common law. So any notice period would be based on the regularity of the pay. If they are paid weekly then you would give 1 weeks notice etc.
