The unintended resignation and how to handle it

Are you an Employer? And have you found yourself in the middle of an argument or dispute with an employee and they have ended a conversation with ‘I QUIT!!’, or sent you a message after a heated conversation that says “I RESIGN”?

Although it’s best not to find yourself in this position, the reality is that it happens and if you are an employer, it’s best to know what to do next. Firstly, you should allow the employee what is called a ‘cooling-off period’ of at least 24 hours before accepting their resignation. This way both parties can gather their thoughts together and the employee has time to consider whether they really do want to resign. After the 24-hour period, you should arrange a meeting to discuss the resignation with the employee and confirm that resigning was, in fact, their intention.

If you are an employee and you have resigned in the heat of the moment, but later decide that perhaps you’ve made the wrong decision, you should be made known to your employer as soon as possible.
