Dear all,

How many days notice period is required for termination under probation if nothing is mentioned in the contract letter?

It should be for 1 day.

If the contract is silent and the employee is covered under the Employment Act, the notice period is minimum 1 day.

Follow the Employment Act or your company current practice.

It should be 24 hours if not mistaken.
