Resignations: Insincerity and bad intentions can sway favour in a lawsuit
The law of resignation is often misunderstood. In order to be a true resignation, the employee must actually and unequivocally resign. Often it is difficult to accuse an employee of having resigned, especially when she has not been given notice that her actions will be treated as a resignation.
In a recent British Columbia case, Koos v. A & A Custom Contact Brokers, this is exactly what ooccurred.
Here is my write up of the case, published in the Metro News.
