What is Resignation?

A resignation is a formal process by which an employee voluntarily terminates their employment with a company. It involves the employee submitting a written notice to their employer, indicating their intention to leave the job and the date on which they plan to do so.

Resignation can be initiated by the employee for a variety of reasons, such as a better job opportunity, dissatisfaction with the current job, personal reasons, or retirement. It can also be initiated by the employer, in which case it is referred to as a termination or dismissal.

Resignation is an important process that allows both the employee and employer to plan for the future and make necessary arrangements.

What legal and best practice aspects should employers be aware of?

  • An employee may have been constructively dismissed if the employer's actions prompted them to resign.

  • Unless the employer agrees to forgo the notice provision, the employee is required by his or her employment contract to work a period of notice.

  • The employer should always accept an employee's resignation in writing, stating the last day the person is expected to work and the date the employment will end (if different).

  • If the employment contract allows it, an employer may pay the employee in lieu of notice to enable his or her early departure from the organisation.

  • Employers may place employees on "garden leave" for the duration of the notice period if their employment contracts allow it.

  • Employers should conduct exit interviews to determine the cause for the employee's departure and to utilise this as a chance to fix any workplace concerns.
