Leaving a Job



Welcome to Lawshelf’s video course on leaving a job. This course looks at many issues relevant to the process of transitioning between jobs, including notice, termination, compensation, benefits and references. This is an introductory level course and no prior knowledge of employment law is necessary.

The course begins with a discussion of how and why people leave jobs. We will look at resignation rules and the unusual cases in which resignation can lead to contractual liability. We also look at the “constructive discharge rule,” in which resignation due to poor conditions may be considered tantamount to a discharge. We will also focus on responsibilities of an employee who leaves a job, such as keeping certain information confidential and enforcement of non-compete agreements. Discussions of best practices when resigning and references round out this opening module.
