Is the final penalty for employee misconduct that falls short of gross misconduct. For example, if employees are persistently late, absent, or perform to a low standard and have failed to improve their conduct then dismissal with notice may occur as the final stage within a disciplinary procedure. Before leaving their employment, therefore, the employees will work their notice period or, as is more usual, will receive payment in lieu of notice. Minimum notice periods are set down in law.
