  • Resignation

    When an employee decides to terminate the employment relationship and clearly communicates their intention by giving the employer a notice of resignation.

    How much notice an employee must give depends on the terms of their employment agreement. If a departing employee does not give the minimum notice period—in accordance with the terms of their employment agreement—the employer can withhold money from the departing employee’s final pay.

    It is important for an employer to find out why the departing employee is leaving and if there are deeper problems in the company that should be addressed. This is vital if the departing employee plans on filing a personal grievance claim against the company in the near future.
