Burning Question - Can I retract my resignation?

CSP experts give you regular updates on employment-related issues.  Got an issue you’re worried about? Ask your steward/student rep or, if you don’t have one, contact the CSP.  View previous columns at Burning questions 

I’ve handed in my notice but now I’ve changed my mind – what can I do?

Once a resignation has been given it can only be retracted if your employer agrees.

The only exceptions to this rule are if notice was given, either by an employer or an employee, in the ‘heat of the moment’ (during an argument, for example) and then immediately retracted, or if the words used by either party were ambiguous or unclear.

If you need support in the workplace contact your CSP steward.

If you do not have a steward contact the CSP. Tel: 020 7306 6666. Email: enquiries@csp.org.uk
