Sending dismissal letters by post: When does dismissal take effect?

08 May 2018

An issue that has vexed employment lawyers for some time is when does notice of termination of employment take effect. There are a number of possible answers to this question. Assuming the contract of employment is silent on this point, is notice effective when the letter communicating the decision would have been delivered in the ordinary course of post, or is it when as a matter of fact the letter was delivered or is it when the employee actually reads it or when the employee ought reasonably to have read it? This issue was recently considered by the Supreme Court.
