I am currently connected in a private school. Our school directress issued a memo to all faculty and staff regarding LETTER OF INTENT TO RESIGN/NON-RENEWAL OF CONTRACT. Prior to that, she informed all the employees through the department heads about the deadline as to when to submit the said letter of intent. The deadline was just last January 31, 2013.
She stated in her memo, and I qoute "as per our school's practice, let me remind those who failed to submit the letter of intent to resign but will tender their letter of resignation in the subsequent dates that you shall be penalized with the following for violating our school policy:
1. forfeiture of some de minimis benefits that are enjoyed by the employees
2. withholding of the last salary until the clearance on all obligations and responsibilities shall be signed by the school authorities.
3. violation of the school policy shall be clearly indicated in the Certificate of Employment.
end of quote.
My questions are and please enlighten me with this matter, i know some of my colleagues who have not yet tendered their letter of intent to resign because (1) they are not still sure with the new job they are applying (if they will be hired or not) and that they are just ensuring themselves that they will not end up jobless after they tender their letter; and
(2) in case of uncontrollable circumstances, what if there are things that will happen after the set deadline, that would make you decide to resign..anyway, most of the contracts here will end this March and others will end in the month of June of this year.
Does item no. 3 (Reflecting the violation in the Cert. of Employment)stated above lawful? or fair enough for the employees who served the school religiously for more than 3 years?
Can we request Certificate of Employment as early as now, even if we are still in contract with the school? (Because this is one of the requirements for application to other institutions).
Thank you so much mam/sir for your time. Hope to hear from you soon.
