How do I put in resignation notice while my managers are on vacation? I guess it’s that time of the year when everyone is off. But I also don’t want to prolong my last day at work because of this. Is it acceptable if I put in resignation over email? Or should I reach out and ask to get otp for 2mins

Does your manager have a manager or second-in-command? That’s who you should be going to for work matters when they’re OOO. You could cc your manager when you send your resignation letter/email. (I would only do this if you don’t care about maintaining a relationship with your manager though, otherwise I would wait.)

Both my manager and their manager is on vacation. I am pretty sure higher up mgmt is also out. I know the timing sucks, but it is what it is.. I just want to make sure i can ask Jan 31 to be my last day.

So depends on your relationship with your boss. Is he/she a generally nice person? Try to see if you can get ahold of them on the phone and let them know ur intentions then ask who they would like you to coordinate with to submit the resignation etc etc.. Is ur boss a jerk? Call HR give them your intentions, they will ask you to provide an email or written notice and CC your manager on the message. Best of luck!

My boss is not very nice which is why I am leaving, to be honest..

Why put in your resignation now? Collect your bonus and bounce

As long as you’re comfortable with the signing bonus and you truly don’t think you can wait just send an email to your manager copying your HR partner and say you’re resigning and giving whatever your required notice is. You’ve accepted another role and your last day will be whatever and that you’re available to speak should they have any further questions.

Suggest getting on the phone. If you value and respect your managers - it shows them you cared and didn’t just send an email

Will you be taking vacation, too? If so just until after New Year’s.

I will always send an email as written proof. Your manager will not be happy regardless..but ask if you talk with them for few minutes before sending it out- the opportunity presented unexpected and you have to give your answers by end of xyz date..don’t feel bad

I would say it depends on if you are planning on leaving within one month. If your desired last day is longer than a month after your Manager returns I would wait until they return. Otherwise, I would see if your Manager’s Manager is available.

This is my main concern. I just want to make sure my last day is Jan 31. I have 30 day notice period. If I wait til Jan 3rd, is it still fine to ask to have the final day as Jan 31? I don’t want to ruin my prospects of coming back to this firm in future

Just call HR…

Email HR, my manager is doing that to our VP who is on vacation

Email will suffice!

I just called. I didn't even send an email or inform HR but the partner passed the info along.

Last year I resigned by setting up a quick 5 mins call with my manager’s manager, while my manager was on vacay

Give it to HR

So what did you end up doing?

While the corporate world typically slows it's hiring down in the first quarter of the year, franchisors are looking for talented individuals to turn their employee status into ownership status. Many will take that year end bonus and utilize it to pay their franchise fee and begin their venture into becoming their own boss. Others will be frustrated by no year end bonus or raise. Wondering what to do next. There are franchise opportunities for most everyone. Let's chat!

Recently 1 of my clients initiated open PTO policy. The transition from set leave balance to open was smooth process. However we are running into dilemma of how we standardize different types of leaves and whether there will be a limitation to how much open PTO is used at one time. For leisure, we just limit taking two weeks max at one time. However if we have volunteer policy or bereavement policy how should we standardize it? If EE is out for longterm sick, how do we standardize time paid?
