                    Remarks:
                    • Sec. 37(1) BCEA establishes minimum notice periods to be observed by the employer when he or she intends to dismiss an employee, as follows:
                      - 1 week's notice if the employee has been employed for 6 months or less,
                      - 2 week's notice if the employee has been employed for more than 6 months but not more than 1 year;
                      - 4 weeks if the employee has been employed for one year or more (or is a farm or domestic workers employed for more than 6 months)
                      Collective agreements only provide shorter notice periods than those stipulated by the BCEA for workers with more than 1 year of service. In such cases, the notice period can be reduced to 2 weeks (sec. 37(2) BCEA).
                      • duración de servicio ≥ 6 meses
                        • 2 semana(s).
                      • duración de servicio ≥ 9 meses
                        • 2 semana(s).
                      • duración de servicio ≥ 2 años
                        • 4 semana(s).
                      • duración de servicio ≥ 4 años
                        • 4 semana(s).
                      • duración de servicio ≥ 5 años
                        • 4 semana(s).
                      • duración de servicio ≥ 10 años
                        • 4 semana(s).
                      • duración de servicio ≥ 20 años
