What exactly is 1 calendar month when in the context of employment stating 1
calendar months notice must be given if one wishes to terminate employment.

Must a calendar month begin on the 1st of a month or can I give one months
calendar notice beginning on say the 8th of October and ending on the 8th of
November?

I'd ask the person who wrote that contract. Most likely from the 8th
to the 8th.

Yes to the second interpretation.

One calendar month is exactly what it's says, regardless of the day of the
month

When I last quit a job, I handed in my notice on the 21st - and left on the
21st of the next month.
In the UK a calendar month usually runs from any given day to the same day
the next month - it's when they get into more complex wording that the fun
starts!

A calendar month is usually about 2 weeks long. Here in the U.S., 2
weeks notice is pretty much the norm.

And I thought all this time, that 2 weeks was a fortnight, go figure.

And what does it say?

I thought it was a perfectly good question -- don't you understand it?

The poster is asking if a calendar month is simply the length of time
that month is (30 days) or if a calendar month requires a whole month
by name to pass (September).

Here in Canada, we usually just blame this type of thing on the
Metric System.

And, of course, on the "Damned Government". *That* goes without

Yeah - they keep threatening the metric system on us unsuspecting Americans.
So far, we've been safe...

Yeah, you guys pulled that switch in the 60's. Half of the
'selling-point' here was that "well, the Americans *say* they're
adopting it, so soon the whole world will be...."

Too bad they don't listen anymore. They made me learn the basics in school,
and actually, I'm fine with the metric system. I do some CAD work at the
office, and often the drawings sent to me are metric. It really isn't hard,
it's just unfamilar.
