Customer Question
Hey, I've put in my resignation...
Hey,
I've put in my resignation for 2 months time and I had the region manager sit in front of me and say that I wasn't allowed to do that and tried to cohearse me in sending in a resignation for 2 weeks. I was then sent a email advising that as my wish the resignation date was for 2 weeks. I responded saying this was incorrect and that my resignation date stands as of 2/3/15. I don't know whether today is my last day

Your resignation is accepted and you wish for your last day of service to be 19/1/2016.Your final pay will include any outstanding leave entitlements and will be deposited in your nominated bank account in the week following your last day.Salary Packaging
You are required to liaise with EPAC directly regarding any monies they have and whether you wish these to be paid to any benefit items or returned to you through payroll and taxed in the normal way. Your Salary Packaging amount is forwarded to EPAC on a fortnightly basis with the normal pay run, please ensure you allow for this when choosing your cessation date. You will need to call EPAC on 1300 223 202 to cease your salary packaging.Normal packaging will be taken from your final pay unless you send an email to hrstaff_all_queries or to your Local HR Advisor stating that you do not want packaging taken out of your final pay. This notice needs to be sent at least 48 hours prior to your final day.Please note that you cannot package Annual Leave and other termination entitlements.If you have a Visa card through EPAC, please note that any funds left on the card when you cease Salary Packaging will be held by ANZ for up to 3 months to be offset against any merchant invoices that are delayed in being presented to ANZ.Separation Certificate

On your final day you will need to arrange with your direct manager to complete and sign off your termination checklist, ensuring that all company property and equipment has been returned, before your final payment is able to be released.Exit Survey
The Salvation Army Employment Plus has introduced an on-line Exit Survey process for all departing employees. This is an opportunity for you to provide feedback about EPlus, your job and the people you work with. Your feedback is important as it will help us better understand the reasons why people leave EPlus, what we can do to retain employees and identify any systemic issues that need to be addressed.The process is administered by an external consultancy firm, Insync Surveys, independent of EPlus, so you can have the confidence that any issues raised will be treated confidentially and in a sensitive manner. One exemption to the confidentiality of the survey is when feedback relates to Bullying and Harassment, in this case, your comments will be sent verbatim back to the National HR Manager to assess if further investigation is required.You will shortly receive a system generated email from Insync Survey's with a unique link to the survey.
Kind Regards,
National Human Resources

I don't know how to find it
Solicitor: Leon, Solicitor replied 2 years ago

If it says that you have to give 2 weeks notice then they can enforce and accept only 2 weeks.

You cannot set your own notice period

Have you asked them for a copy?
