Termination at earlier notice – employment contract for a trial period

The employment contract for a trial period may be terminated at earlier notice, duration of which depends on the length of trial:

  • if the trial period does not exceed 2 weeks, the applicable notice is 3 working days;
  • if the trial period is longer than 2 weeks, the applicable notice is 1 week;
  • if the trial period is 3 months, the applicable notice is 2 weeks.

The employer’s or the employee’s declaration on termination at earlier notice must be made in writing, but does not have to indicate grounds for termination. Again, as with the employment contract for definite time, this is more like at-will termination than just-cause termination.
