    Hello,

    I have been working in a consulting firm since August 2015 and is planning to resign shortly to be a full-time independent consultant. I am unable to work-out the notice period I need to provide to my employer as it is not clearly mentioned in my offer (mentioned below).

    Found after a search in internet, that the notice is based on my tenure with the employer. In this case between 1 year and 3 years, hence need only 2 weeks notice. Not sure if this is correct under employment law.

    Could you please assist?

    Thanks.

    Best Regards,

    Whilst employers have a statutory minimum period of notice, there is no statutory period of notice for employees to provide.

    I do not think you are obligated to provide notice. The contract is drafted poorly.
