Ending contracts

You and your employer must both stick to a contract until it ends. But sometimes you or your employer might want to end your contract.

Your employer wants to end your contract

Your employer might want to end your contract – they might want to sack or dismiss you. If you have not kept to the terms in your contract, your employer might be allowed to do this.

If you think your employer wants to sack or dismiss you, you should get advice from a qualified advisor.

You want to end your contract

To end your contract you need to take these steps:

  1. Check your contract to see how much time – usually a week, two weeks or a month – you need to give your employer before you stop working for them. This is your notice period.
  2. Write a letter called a resignation letter, telling your employer that you are resigning from your job. Use one of the sample resignation letters below to help you.
