A notice period is the amount of time an employee has to continue working after handing in their letter of resignation.
If you decide to stop working for your umbrella company, there will be a period of time you have to continue working before you can move on to other things. This is called your notice period and will be written into your notice of employment. Typically, it is between 1 and 3 months.
Notice period can also refer to the amount of ‘notice’ an umbrella employer needs to give an employee before terminating their contract. This is also detailed in your contract of employment. Notice periods are designed to protect both parties, so they have time to adjust and prepare for the change.
