What you can do if an employee walks out

When an employee walks off the job, does that mean they’ve resigned or do you have to keep their job open for them?

It’s a common scenario that leaves many employers scratching their heads, wondering at what point after someone stops coming to work you can consider them to have silently resigned.

If you find yourself in this situation as an employer, you’re required to make ‘reasonable investigations’ explains Fiona Corbett, National Manager Workplace Advice.

‘This might include attempting to contact the employee by telephone, email, letter or via emergency contacts,’ she adds.

It is generally recommended you wait at least seven days (and have made numerous attempts to contact them) before concluding they are ending their employment.
