8. Entitlement and termination terms in United Kingdom

Employers are generally required to offer notice to employees prior to terminating employment. The notice period is between one and twelve weeks, depending on the duration of employment of the employee. Employers frequently include extended notice periods in contracts. Employers may also give compensation in lieu of notice and quickly terminate an employee if the employment contract provides for it or if the employer and employee agree on this arrangement.

When employees are laid off as a result of redundancy, special processes apply. Employers must make every effort to avoid redundancy whenever possible by reassigning superfluous staff, reducing or eliminating overtime, discontinuing the use of contractors and freelancers, or implementing temporary or short-term layoffs rather than permanent ones.

If no alternative to layoffs exists, or if the company still needs to lay off employees after all other options have been exhausted, the employer must pursue the legal process for redundancy terminations. Employees who are eligible for statutory redundancy get a payment based on their age and duration of service.

In certain cases, employers are compelled to provide severance.
