THE BCEA ON NOTICE PERIODS
The starting point is to look at the notice periods for resignation prescribed in Section 37 of the Basic Conditions of Employment Act (the Act). They are as follows –
1. one week, if the employee has been employed for six months or less;
2. two weeks, if the employee has been employed for more than six months but not more than one year;
3. four weeks, if the employee–
i) has been employed for one year or more; or
ii) is a farm worker or domestic worker who has been employed for more than six months.
