Resignation Procedure

Unread post by rainbowunicorn » 07 Apr 2018, 13:06

My current contract states the following under termination of contract:
5. Notice of termination

Your employment is not permanent and you should have no expectation of continued employment. Your employment commences on 1 August 2016 and terminates on 31 December 2017 without any notice of such termination being required. Should it become necessary to terminate your employment prior to the date of termination, your employment may only be terminated for good reason and after a fair procedure has been followed. In such circumstances your employment will terminate with notice.

This agreement may also be terminated prior to the expiry of the minimum time period of this agreement due to operational requirements by the company in accordance with the relevant provisions of the Labour Relations Act No. 66 of 1995.

I have been employed for over a year with the company and they have sent me a contract extension in November 2017 which I signed.

What notice period must I give?
Do I have to give a calendar month's notice or can it just be 30 days?

If the contract does not specify the notice period, 4 weeks notice must be given in terms of the BCEA.
