The Employee Exit References Authorization Template should be signed by the employee, authorizing the company to provide information regarding their job performance and qualifications for employment. ADM107-2 EXIT REFERENCES AUTHORIZATION is necessary so that the company is not held liable for providing such information.
The company may terminate an employee for cause (i.e., misconduct, insubordination, etc.) or the inability of the employee to perform satisfactorily the duties of his or her position. The Human Resources Manager should make sure all facts have been documented accurately, that adequate performance or attendance records have been kept and discussed with the employee and the decision is not being made on inference, suspicion, or emotions.
In terms of resignation, all employees are requested to be considerate of company needs and other employees in the event of a resignation and provide the company with at least two weeks’ notice. Employees in management positions are requested to provide up to thirty days notice. In some situations, the company may be able to work with resigning employees to expedite this process.
