    I currently work at a University, and have decided to hand in my notice during the probationary period. I've been in the current position for six months, and wish to leave at the end of the six month period of notice that I have given (stated in the contract).

    The University wishes me to depart immediately, am I therefore entitled to pay in lieu of notice, or can I just be told to leave immediately under Employment Law?

    Thank you very much

    This will depend entirely on what your employment contract says.

    If you are able to work out the notice, however the employer does not wish for you to physically attend and work it out, they must pay you out in lieu.

    If you're a national system employee, your NES notice is 1 week unless contract provides for additional notice. Nonetheless you need to be paid if not worked out.
