can any pay in lieu of notice be tax free or not?

16 December 2015

Before negotiating settlements with staff or their representatives, schools should check the contractual terms of the employee to identify if there is a pay in lieu of notice clause in the contract as that will mean that any notice payment, paid as part of the settlement, is a contractual term and so would be subject to deductions i.e. it would be paid net rather than gross.

Emily Addai discusses more about pay in lieu of notice in this quickcall question, exploring when payments can be made and restrictions around these payments.
