What is the difference between dismissal with notice and without notice?
A dismissal with the appropriate notice is a contractually lawful dismissal. The notice of dismissal will specify when the dismissal takes effect. If your contract says that you are entitled to a month’s notice, the dismissal will normally be effective one month from the date on which you are told that your contract is being terminated.
The Acas Code of Practice on Disciplinary and Grievance Procedures (PDF, 167KB) recommends that employers should tell their employees clearly what constitutes gross misconduct.
