Longer notice - not always possible

One of our Clients wondered whether it is legally possible to lengthen the employee’s notice period in his/her employment contract.

This matter is not regulated in statutory law, but according to jurisprudence it is admissible if such contract regulation will be favourable for employee. Thus, lengthening of employer’s notice period is always possible, but lengthening employee’s notice period will be scrutinized separately in each case. Lengthening of notice period for specialist who can very easily find another good job offer is favourable only for employer and as such will be void.
