Can we impose a blanket notice period on resigning employees?
Q: Can an employer impose a blanket notice period (e.g. 4 or 12 weeks’ notice) on resigning employees? How does that interact with the statutory periods under the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth) (FW Act)? What could an employer do if the employee does not give the required notice? Would the employer then have to give the corresponding notice when terminating employment?
