payment in lieu of notice

payment in lieu of notice
payment in lieu of notice (PILON)
A contractual right to pay an employee a lump sum rather than require them to work out their statutory or contractual notice period. If there is no PILON clause in a contract of employment then an employer who pays an employee a lump sum salary payment instead of requiring them to work their period of notice will technically be in breach of contract but the employee will usually have suffered no loss.
