Give two weeks notice

It's very common to give two weeks notice as standart when quitting your job. Although senior managers may need to provide a minimum of three months notice.  Details should be in your contract or union representative can tell how many weeks you should give and you must follow what is written in your contract to ensure you receive a reference in the future, and avoid possible unwanted charges etc.  If you don't have a contract a general rule of thumb is that if you are paid weekly, you just need to give two weeks notice, if you're paid monthly then you should give one month notice.

Your boss might want to negotiate with you to stay on longer than your minimum notice period but you don't have to do it.  You are only obliged to stay on for the minimum contracted period.

You boss is also obliged to pay you for your notice period, less any holiday or benefits that you owe to the company. If you don't have a contract, or you both agree to it, your employment could be terminated immediately.  Employers could also decide that you should be removed from the workplace immediately, particularly if you have access to 'sensitive' information which they could be concerned you may want to take with you, although they are still obliged to pay you for your notice period.
