I am just reading through a Contract of Employment, and under the Notice Period section it states:
Unless your employment is terminated by agreement, or specified otherwise in your principal statement of terms and conditions, you or the Company are required to give a period of notice in writing as follows:
This applies for both employee and employer.
During probationary period – 1 week
Up to scale PO3 – 4 weeks
PO3 and above – 12 weeks
What does this mean? I have searched the entire document and employee handbook but it is not mentioned anywhere else. Given it uses the word "Scale" I am inclined to think it may be a pay band thing, however pay grades are on a completely different scale.
For reference this is public sector, UK city council.
