The safest way to serve notice is to deliver in person or failing this, is to send by courier, post or email.

  • In person: hand the letter to the employee personally.

  • Post: if you are serving notice by post then it is recommended that you use recorded delivery and that you keep a copy of the proof of posting and delivery. Check you have the employee’s latest address.

  • Email: check that the employment contract allows you to send notices by email and whether it requires you to request a "read receipt" as proof of service.

A copy of the letter will be saved in your Rocket Lawyer account.

  • If you post or hand deliver the letter then keep a copy of the signed letter that was sent and anything else included.

  • If you email the letter then keep a copy of the email that was sent and any attachments together with any "read receipts".
