Re: How would you guys handle this employee resignation?

Let her go the day you got the message as long as you know it is legit. She will do you no good in those 2 weeks like adding pkgs stealing money etc....

Re: How would you guys handle this employee resignation?

I so agree w/the others about letting her go ASAP. I thank them for the notice and get em out the door. Otherwise, they get "shortitis" and don't show for shifts, help themselves to products and free tan their friends.

As long as you have her resignation in writing and dated, you don't have to worry about unemployment filings. Good luck!

Re: How would you guys handle this employee resignation?

Next time she worked I would make sure to acknowledge her 2 weeks, thank her for her time with you (as she must have done some things right to keep her for a year) and let her know she will be missed (even if that is a stretch), so that when she does leave she feels comfortable enough to become a regular tanning client. And not out bad mouthing your business.

Thats exactly what I am saying and the let that person go. Then suggest they have a vaccation for the rest of the 2 weeks and thank for their patronage and if things don't work out if you have a spot let you know. The let that person go

Re: How would you guys handle this employee resignation?

I am former HR Exec. You have 2 issues - first, fix your handbook to state that all staff must give notice when leaving your salon. Decide how much notice you want, 3 days, 1 week or 2 weeks. Fix that soon.

She gave you two weeks it writing, that's professional and don't punish her for it. In fact you might want to ask her why she is leaving. You might learn something about your salon, other staff members or yourself. Her comments might be right, they may be off base, but do an informal exit interview. A one line resignation tells me that there is more to her resignation that you know.

Also, in my state, if someone gives you 2 weeks notice, and you terminate in advance of that two weeks, then you have to pay them for the two weeks. If they decide to leave early, it's their loss. If you let them go early, you might be wasting your money. Sometimes spending the money is worth getting a bad influence out of the salon, but do it with respect. It's cheaper than having to defend yourself in a labor board hearing or worse yet, in the community.

As far as someone stealing from you, get a security camera system that watches the cash register, inventory area, and back room. Let them know that it's recording and that any theft will not be tolerated - and will be prosecuted. Make it part of new employee orientation and training checklist so they have to acknowledge that they know this. We've had very few issues since installing these and staff know that I can watch the salon from my home computer or phone.

Just because it says in your handbook that you require employees to give two weeks notice doesn't mean they have to. Anyone can quit anywhere at anytime. Thats what they call a free country

Re: How would you guys handle this employee resignation?

I have always been taught that the proper way to give notice is in writing/email. this documents that you gave notice as well as the date it was given. Not sure the issue
