A notice period is a duration of time specified in an employment contract during which an employee must provide notice to the employer before quitting their job. The notice period typically starts from the time an employee first submits his resignation and ends on the last day of the work. It is a standard procedure followed in every organization to give the employer enough time to look for the replacement of the employee who resigns from the organization. The typical notice period is two weeks, but it can be longer or shorter depending on the situation.
Some people might quit their job without giving notice because they think it’ll give them a better chance of finding a new job quickly. But in most cases, quitting without giving notice makes it more difficult to find another job in the future. Therefore, it’s always best to give notice and leave on good terms, even if you’re not happy with your current job.
