  1. Termination of Employment
  2. Resignation

Q
Could you please advise what entitlements would be reinstated for an employee who resigns and then is reemployed within one month? The employee has worked for us for 11 years and is covered by the General Retail Award 2000.
A
A resignation will generally break an employee’s continuous service with their employer and result in a new period of employment if the employee is re-engaged on a later date.

Assuming that you have paid out this employee’s entitlements when they resigned, they will begin to accrue entitlements such as annual leave from the date that they recommence their employment.
