Countdown to Christmas #SCEadventTips

Tags: tips, Christmas

It’s the first of December and I think most of us will agree, even if many of us are simply conceding, that Christmas 2017 has now started.  There are many of us that love it, with others loathing it and varying degrees in between.   


As part of our count down to the big day, we have created our #SCEadventTips to be posted on our social media channels providing you with a mix of Employment Law reminders and Christmas suggestions.  We hope you find them useful and we encourage you to share them with your colleagues, friends and family. 

You can find us at the following places on social media -


Please also feel free to share with us your Christmas Tips, whether they are a beloved recipe, shopping suggestions or wrapping and decorating demonstrations, just don’t forget to include #SCEadventTips so that we can share and retweet them to our followers. 


Whilst most of us are counting down (whether in excitement or dread) we must remember that the UK is a wonderful assorted mix of cultures, with many that do not recognise this as a period of festivities.  Do try and include these people in your celebrations without making them feel aggrieved. 


We have realised that a tip a day for 25 days doesn’t allow us to cover much, and so remind you that what we provide is by no means an exhaustive list and that we are always at the end of the phone (Christmas Day excluded) to answer you enquires.

    Giving Notice 

    When it comes to employees giving notice, there are several key areas to note. Employers do not have to ‘accept’ a resignation – it is a unilateral act. Equally, they do not have to accept a retraction of notice, unless it was given in the heat of the moment, or the employee was unwell.

    Employees must give at least a weeks’ notice once they have been employed for more than a month. However, longer notice is usually set out in the employment contract.
