There is no need to give any notice on either side in the first month of employment. After one month statutory minimum notice is one week for each complete year of continuous service up to a maximum of 12 weeks' notice after 12 or more years of continuous service.

Small employers with less than 50 employees - staging dates between 1 June 2015 and 1 April 2017
