The Ontario Superior Court of Justice recently found that an employee that left work and turned in her security badge had not resigned from her employment. In that case, after being advised of structural changes in the workplace and how work would be allocated, the employee removed her personal belongings from the office, turned in her security badge, and left the office. Several days later, the employee sought to return to work. The employer took the position that the employee had resigned and would not permit the employee to return to work. The Court found that employee had not resigned because the resignation was not “clear and unequivocal” and that the employee was wrongfully terminated when the employer prohibited her from returning to work. The Court also found that even if the employee had resigned, an employee was permitted to resile from a resignation until the employer had either accepted the resignation, or relied on the resignation to its detriment.
