Employer reject my resignation – So i’m a working part timer that just got their results back and planning to quit.
I told them i want to resign cuz i don’t want to study and work at the same time, but the manager insist i continue working even i’m not willing to and that i can cut down my working hrs. ( I don’t think im going into a JC but ya)
She feels my reason to resign isn’t a good reason and tell me i should able to commit more and this is nvr stated in the contract.
I really hate working here so i thought is a good chance to resign now but they reject me and are not going to approve my resignation, there is a week notice and I have planned my last working day but now i hv to work another 2 more weeks.
I search online that is illegal to do so but the only way to resign is through the manager. Is there anywhere or someone i can contact to report, I can’t find any hq number for the company.
A lot of people saying that it is illegal to reject a resignation, which is true, but OP also needs to resign “properly”. From your post it sounds like you just had a verbal conversation with your manager about resigning, and she verbally rejected you.
You need to officially submit a letter to tender your resignation. Once you submit it (colloquially known as “throwing letter”), ONLY THEN can the employer have no choice but to accept your resignation, and ONLY THEN does your notice period begin.
If you’re just verbally talking about it without further action, the employer can reply whatever he/she wants because it’s all just words.
Know your rights, but also know the right procedures.
