Ask the ExpertEmployee resignation without 2 weeks of notice
Seiko Harada asked 7 months ago

I am in Ontario and am wondering if giving 2 weeks of resignation is a requirement or desired action.
If an employee gives less than 2 weeks of notice, is there anything we can do as an employer other than to talk to them to see if they can stay the full 2 weeks?
Thanks!

From our payroll expert, Alan McEwan:
In some provinces, there is an actual employment standards requirement for employees to give notice. However, Ontario is not one of those, so there is not much an employer can do but to ask nicely.

I see, thank you!

Do you know which provinces have the actual requirement for giving 2 weeks’ notice and what would be the consequences of not giving it?
