How can we negotiate a worker’s termination date?
Question: We have an employee who resigned yesterday, giving substantial notice. She wants to finish just before the end of the Financial Year. This is an awkward time for us, as it doesn’t allow us time to train someone new in the finance department in which she works before it gets really busy. Do we have to accept this date? Our preference would be for her to leave at least 2 weeks earlier so we can have a new person established in her role. If the resigning employee doesn’t agree, what are our options?
