Checklist When Employee Resigns

Checklist for Employee Offboarding when a resource resigns.

1) Get written confirmation of the employee resignation

Get written confirmation of the employee resignation, and the date of resignation. This will help you avoid disputes over the exact date of the resignation and the start of any notice period.

2) Confirm the employee’s notice period

You may find it more appropriate to pay the employee in lieu of all or part of the notice period if your contract provides for it or the employee agrees. However, if you do so, be sure that you have another employee who is able to immediately take on the job. Confirm the employee’s notice period, usually part of their contract of employment. If it is not, statutory notice will apply.
