Minimum notice of resignation by employees

Does an agreement for minimum notice of dismissal assume a minimum notice of resignation?

Question: We put a statement in our contracts indicating we will only pay minimum employment standards requirements for termination. Would that not then assume the employee, by accepting that term, would also have the implied right to provide only the same minimum notice? Even if this clause is not in older employment contracts, if the company has a history of only paying the minimum termination/severance, can it also allow employees to give the minimum notice of resignation?
