Helpful Tips in Leaving Your Job on Good Terms

Posted by Lakes, Whyte LLP on February 1st, 2021

When you wish to leave your job in search of better opportunities or for personal reasons, it’s good to always leave amicably. You can start anew knowing that you didn’t leave ill feelings behind and you can also benefit from the positive words that your coworkers and employer might say to your new ones.

Check out these tips that will help you leave your current job on good terms:

  1. Let your closest coworkers know first

When you are already planning to leave, let your coworkers know first. These are the people who would want to know that you are moving on. If they helped you a lot in the past, it’s also a good time to acknowledge their help. Thank them for all their help and support during your stay in that company. If there are people who recommended you there, you can also talk to them first and let them know the news.

  1. Tender your resignation at an appropriate time

Timing is also crucial when resigning from a company. If it’s such a crucial time for the business or it’s a busy season and they can’t afford to lose an employee during this stage, it might be good to postpone your resignation until things calm down. Your boss will also appreciate you sticking around until it’s not too hectic anymore. It’s also better so that they can process your resignation better.

  1. Find out what the rules are when resigning

Do you need to find a replacement? Do you have to train the new one? Just make sure you give your employers enough time to look for a replacement. It would be good if you have already trained your replacement before leaving so that the company is still in good hands and that you can leave pertinent information behind.

  1. Send a thank-you message to everyone

You can give them cards or small notes. If you have some money to spare, treat them to some coffee or a last dinner. That would be a proper send-off and that would say that you are leaving without ill feelings.

  1. Don’t forget to follow up

Make sure you let them know you have settled in well in your new employment. Catch up from time to time.

But what if you want to leave because of issues within your company? It’s good to resolve the issues beforehand. If the management fails to resolve these issues and there are legal issues that need to be addressed such as your salary or separation pay, you can talk about it with a Vancouver employment lawyer.

Look for an employment lawyer in Vancouver who will be able to talk to them on your behalf. An experienced employment lawyer in Vancouver such as Lakes, Whyte LLP will help you with a variety of employment issues.
