Things don’t always work out. Letting go of employees is never easy. Most employers terminate employees only as a last resort. This is why we decided sharing this information is important in reducing any stress associated with employee termination.
- Alberta’s Employment Standards Code specifies the notice period employers must give when asking someone to leave a job. This termination notice period depends on how long the employee has worked for you.
- You must give termination notice in writing and the employee works and is paid regular pay until the end of the notice period.
- You can offer pay instead of a termination notice. In this case, the employee ends work immediately but is paid for the duration of the notice period.
- If you ask an employee to stop working immediately or partway through a notice period, you must pay the employee until the end of the notice period.
- You do not need to provide termination notice if the termination is temporary (up to 59 days)
- You do not need to provide termination notice if an employee refuses your offer of reasonable alternative work
- You do not need to provide termination notice if if work is unavailable because of a strike or lockout
- You do not need to provide termination notice if the employee is terminated for just cause (e.g. theft, violence…)
