Answer for BC- We have received written resignation of our sales manager who is in a position that we prefer doesn’t have contact with our customers – what is the best way to go about this?

Options are:

  1. Let the person work out the notice given.
  2. Terminate on the spot, paying the dollar amount of whatever this person would have earned (including bonuses, vacation pay, etc.) during the notice given.
  3. Put the person on a paid leave, until the end of the notice given.
  4. Negotiate a shorter, paid notice period, using some combination of 1 to 3.

In all cases, the reason for leaving on the ROE would be quit.
The advantage of 2 is that it caps any possible liability from a disability claim.
