Why is it important to have a Employee Leaving Letter?
When an employee resigns and leaves your business, along with completing the internal Leaving Employee form and the Exit Interview, it is advisable to write to the employee, using a Leaving Employee Letter, confirming that you have received their resignation, and advising them of areas such as:
- Last working day
- Return of any company property
- Reminder of the employee’s obligations under their post termination restrictions
- Any outstanding holiday entitlement that will be paid
- The requirement to attend an exit interview
A copy of this can then be filed in the employee’s personnel file.
