Notice period on fixed contract extension

Dear All,

I started my employment with a company through a 6 month fixed contract, which had as a notice period the following:
- first 3 months: 2 days
- between 3 and 6 months: 1 week
- beyond 6 months: 1 month

At the end of the contract, the same has been extended for other 3 months.

What is my notice period? Itís 1 month since I have been employed with them for more than 6 months or itís only 2 days given that a new contract has started?

Thanks for your reply, very much appreciated!
Gsir

1 month imo. Your contract was extended, itís not a new one, so your employment simply continues into > 6 months

Thanks for your reply.
You think it would be still 1 month even if in this Ďextensioní a new starting and ending date is indicated (i.e. 3 months)?

Well no, cause that's not an extension, but a new contract.

If you got a letter/confirmation of sort that says "your temporary employment is being extended until [XYZ]", then what I said before applies.

If you get an entirely new letter/contract/confirmation that says "your temporary employment lasts from [XYZ] to [XYZ]", then whatever notice periods are stated in that thing are what applies (probably same as in your previous one).

If the latter is the case, it'd be grey zone anyway should an issue ever arise.

It's for the same job, for the same employer and at the same company so it should be seen as stacked contracts and for determining the cancellation dates the whole period counts.

Itís for the same job, same company.
So, in your opinion the notice period would be 1 month?

I am not very convinced though, because otherwise there should have not been the need to specify a new starting date and a new ending date, no?
