6.11.1 Unless otherwise agreed between the employer and the employee, termination of employment shall be two weeks’ notice by either the employee or the employer, to the other party; except in cases of serious misconduct which may warrant instant dismissal.

6.11.2 Where the appropriate notice is given, and subject in all cases to the prior return of keys, clothing, equipment, etc., then the worker shall either be paid on completion of his/her duties, or the employer shall at the next available full pay period after the completion of the worker's duties, post a remittance or cheque for the known net amount due, to the worker. If the employer fails to comply with this provision, the employer shall be liable to a penalty of 15 percent of the net amount due to be paid to the worker subject to the return to the employer of all keys.
