6 months notice period
A quick question here. A friend of mine has signed with afund and the notice period in the contract is 6 months. She has asked but company mentioned this is just standard contract.
Previsouly she thought that this is negotiable (have successfully negociated down a notice preiod before). But during latest job change, boss insisted on she servicing her notice and working until the very last day, which makes her wonder about the much longer notice preiod in the contact of the new job.
Is a 6 months notice period normal for a hedge fund？Is this fair? Does one has room to negociate at the end of your employement? If say someone were to move country (e.g. old job in New York, new job in London/Hong Kong), are the person still bounded by this (assume it would be difficult to enforce)?
