The editor of the Star resigns with immediate effect! Here's a checklist of the nine items you must check when your employee resigns

by , 02 July 2014
Another key employee has resigned at the Independent News & Media South Africa (INMSA) group.

This time, it's Makhudu Sefara, the editor of the Star newspaper. He didn't give reasons for his resignation except to say 'it was an amicable departure'.

Sefara's resignation comes hot on the heels of three other departures at the INMSA group.

Last week, The Mercury editor, Philani Mgwaba resigned. In February, the Sunday Independent editor, Moshoeshoe Monare quit his job. And former Cape Times editor, Alide Dasnois was removed from her position in November last year.

These high profile departures have firmly cast the spotlight on resignations. Take a look at a checklist of the nine items you must check when your employee resigns so resignations don't disrupt your business.
