Ashok KananiEditor's message: Employees are entitled to resign by giving their employer notice. There are a number of steps that employers should take when an employee resigns, including:

  • checking the employee’s contractual obligations, for example notice period and any restrictive covenants;
  • accepting the resignation in writing confirming the termination date based on the full notice period; and
  • deciding the arrangements for a replacement and the announcement of the employee's departure.
