Re: Verbal Resignation

Hi Mr Siew, We have a Store Assistant (Age 56) who joined us on 1st October 2010. HIs working hour is 8:00 am till 5:00 pm. Yesterday, i.e.15/10/2010, time about 10:00am he quit a job by verbally informed the HR Clerk. Subsequently we rang him, reason given by him is upset with his immediate superior. He has decided not to resume work. Based on his contract of employment, he needs to serve 1 week notice.

1) can an employer accept verbal resignation? if not, is this treat as breach of contract - Section 15(2)?

Please help!

Yes and claim a week wages from him as indemnity in lieu of notice if necessary.

So, I shall proceed with the Section 15(2) show cause letter or direct to send him a termination letter and state a clause saying that he has breach of contract Section 15(2). Correct? Many thanks!

In this case, he has resigned without giving 1 week notice and not absent. Write to him and demand a week's salary from him and withhold 1 week's salary from his balance of salary.
