Here's this week's top question from the LabourandHRClub.co.za asked by one of our readers.

If employees resign and leave without serving a full notice, can we deduct money from their salaries?
Asked on labourandclub

We are a school. It's very important for us to have a teacher in each class.

Our contracts for teachers state that we need a full academic term's notice for resignations to be able to advertise a new post and interview applicants.

It also states that there will be some sort of penalty if teachers don't give sufficient notice.

Their contracts clearly stipulate that they must give one full terms notice or 3 months if they resign.

If a teachers resigns without providing the sufficient notice, what action are we entitled to take?

Can we, for example:
  • Enforce the resignation period?
  • Or deduct money from their salary?
