Employer Not Liable for Employee’s Change of Heart

May 18, 2017  |  From HRCalifornia Extra

An employee comes to you and says she wants to resign effective immediately. You accept the employee’s resignation, process the termination and make the preparations to pay the employee’s final wages within 72 hours.

Then, unexpectedly, the employee calls and asks to rescind her resignation. What do you do? Do you have to let the employee withdraw her resignation? If you don’t, can the employee claim you did something unlawful? These questions were recently answered by a California appeals court.​
