renewable annual contract, finalize a contract

I've been working for 7 years non-stop in a Swiss company in Zurich. The contract is annual and each June is extended for another year (and so on).
I have accepted a job offer in USA and now I must inform my employer here that I have left my job in Switzerland.
Taking into account the above data, how much is the time of notification which I give to my company? 1 month or 3?

Does your contract mention anything?

Re: renewable annual contract, finalize a contract

It's not June (or en dof May) so it hasn't been extended yet. Or has it?

What is the modus by which it gets extended, is it extednded automatically unless cancelled (by which date?) or does it require explicit extension ("we hire you for another 12 months")?

Re: renewable annual contract, finalize a contract

My guess is it's 3 months as typically, what counts is your tenure rather than the exact conditions of your contract - and you've effectively been in the job/company for 7 years, not one.

That being said, without knowing the exact wording of the contract, nothing can be said with certainty.
