  2. Resignation


Can an employment contract have two different termination notice periods? For example, if the employer terminates employment, the employer will give the employee 2 weeks’ notice, but if the employee resigns, they must give the employer 1 month’s notice?


Yes, an employment contract can have two different termination periods, provided that the terms comply with the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth), and any applicable modern award or enterprise agreement.
