Unfair dismissal: Unambiguous resignation is nearly always effective

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Ali v Birmingham City Council EAT/0313/08, the EAT held that an employee's unambiguous resignation was effective and could not be unilaterally withdrawn once it had been accepted by the employer. It is only in exceptional circumstances that words of resignation should not be taken at their face value.
