Length of service and seniority were two important factors in a recent NSW Supreme Court decision, which compelled an employer to part with $900,000.

    I believed the NES to be the standard with regards to notice periods or a contract can supersede that if more favourable. As employers how can we determine what's reasonable based on tenure? What should be used as a guideline?

    How is an employer supposed to determine 'reasonable notice' based on tenure? Even redundancy provisions only allow for 12 weeks after 10 years. Where does it state 10 months as being reasonable for a long standing, executive?

    I don't understand either, where did the 10 month reasonable notice period come from?

    This has gone crazy.
