Please help ... What is meant by 'in lieu of' here in this context? Thanks?

Context:

Under Clause 10 of the SEC, both the FDH and the employer may

terminate the contract by giving one month’s notice in writing or one

month’s wages in lieu of notice.

    Instead of, in place of. That is what 'in lieu of' always means.

    So you either get a month's notice before you are out of the door at the end of the month, or you get paid for that month now, and you are out of the door now.

    In this context, it means one month's wages are forfeited if the required notice is not provided.

    lieu means place.  so in place of. instead of.  you can do the one, or the other.  Either way, the person will get paid for one month.  Just a question of whether you will make him work that month or just tell him not to come back.

    It means the employer can stop your job giving you a month's 'finishing' period where you leave after a month of notice, or paying you a months wages on the end of your contract.

    In place of or instead of. People don't need to be given one month's notice if the company pays the person one months wages.
