In all organisations there will come a time when an employee will resign. It is best therefore to prepare and keep on file a precedent letter that can quickly be customised and handed to employees on resignation.
While thanking the employee for their service to the company, the letter also reminds the employee of post-employment obligations such as keeping the employer’s information confidential. It can also set out details of any post-employment restraints (eg on locations where the employee can work post-employment with the company).
