If an employee hands in their resignation and intends to work throughout their notice period, can we ask them to leave halfway through this period? Are we then required to pay the rest of the notice in lieu?


Yes, you can require the employee to leave halfway through their notice period, but you will need to pay them for the remaining unworked portion of their notice period in lieu of this.
