Resignation notice period

If you wish to submit your resignation, you will need to comply with the period of notice. The duration of your period of notice will depend on your contract of employment: 

  • If you have been employed continuously for more than twelve months, you will need to give three month’s notice. 
  • If you have been employed for less than 6 months continuously, your notice period is one month.
  • For any other type of contract of employment, you will need to give two month’s notice. 
  • If you signed your contract of employment after you reached the state pension age (AOW), you will need to give one month’s notice.

You will need to submit your resignation in writing to your supervisor. You will also need to notify the personnel HR officer.
