Employee Resignation

EMPLOYEE RESIGNATION

We often get calls from individuals who are thinking about resigning.

Some people want to know how much notice of resignation he or she is required to provide his or her current employer. Contrary to popular belief, there is no statutory or common law requirement to provide two weeks notice of termination.

A little know fact is that an employer can sue an employee for “wrongful resignation.”

Some people want to know whether the non-competition or non-solicitation agreement they signed is enforceable.

Did you know that if you are a senior executive or you are the face of your employer to its clients then you may have a duty not to solicit customers even if you didn’t sign a non-solicitation agreement?

Some people want to discuss what will happen if they take a job with a competitor and the former employer sues them.

Some people want us to review an offer of employment from a new employer.
