Once you tender your resignation, then it is up to the employer as to whether or not to allow any rescission. A resignation is a unilateral notice that you are quitting. That means that you are severing the employer/employee relationship unilaterally as of that time. So you can't rescind it to reestablish that relationship and essentially "re-hire" yourself unless the employer actually agrees to allow you to "take it back" and will technically offer you your job back.
