Hi, Today morning I resigned from my post as an HR Executive. So, is it necessary to work and should I wait for my resignation to be accepted by the manager?
And how much time it takes to accept the resignation letter. Kindly guide

Dear friend,

A HR executive raising such a question would certainly make anyone slightly disturbed. What about the notice clause to be fulfilled by the employee? Even if there is no notice clause, normally resignation becomes effective, not on the very date of its submission, but only when it is accepted by the employer and the resignee is actually relieved.
Time taken by the employer to accept the resignation depends on factors like the position held by the resignee, pendency of time-bound work, if any assigned and yet to be completed by the employee, minimum time required to make alternative arrangement etc.

Dear Chaitrali Angane,

On submission of the letter of the resignation, the employee is expected to work not just till the letter of acceptance of the resignation is issued, but till the completion of the notice period mentioned in the appointment letter. If the employee quits without completing the notice period, then it becomes abandonment of employment, which is misconduct.

When children play, it is easy for one of the children to withdraw in between. However, the employer-employee relationship is governed by labour laws. The employer is obliged to maintain the spirit of the labour laws by not terminating the employee on the spot as much employee to his/her employer by not quitting without any notice.

Therefore, please check the clause of the notice period mentioned in your appointment letter and take a decision. I do not think your employer has issued you an appointment letter without a separation clause.

I fully agree with the observations made by Veterans S/shri Umakanthan and Dinesh Divekar. Being HR Executive should not have raised such query. Thanks
