If you have been accused of a resignation where you do not think you have, it is imperative that you immediately meet with an employment lawyer, as there are certain steps you must take in order to protect the legal claim that you have.
Many times there is a dispute about whether or not an employee has, in fact, offered a resignation, as employees who voluntarily resign, without a good reason, are not entitled to severance and employment insurance benefits.
Court decisions have stated that when an employee resigns, it must be clear and unequivocal. Employees who resign in the ‘heat of the moment’ during an argument, on impulse, or where the resignation was given in response to an ultimatum may not have legally resigned.
If there is any dispute about a resignation, Whitten & Lublin Employment & Labour Lawyers can help employers and employees determine:
- Whether or not an employee has in fact resigned, whether on impulse or in response to an ultimatum;
- Whether the resignation is valid; and
- Cases for wrongful resignation.
To better understand your workplace rights and explore the viability of a claim during these unprecedented times, we encourage employees and employers to seek legal advice. We at Whitten & Lublin are happy to provide insight and advice into your specific circumstances.
