How to Handle an Employee Resignation

Efficiency does not need to go to down the pipes when an employee resigns. Susan M. Heathfield writes about how you can handle the transition. First, you ought to get a resignation letter in writing just to protect yourself from legal implications. After that, in the last two weeks, the employee can pass along all relevant details about ongoing projects to affected colleagues. You too can approach employees about helping to pick up the slack while a replacement is found. When the employee is especially valued, make a big deal of having everyone wish that person farewell. On the other hand, if the employees are not valued, pay them for the two weeks but otherwise kick them to the curb. Good riddance!
