You can file for "damages" as mentioned in the LC.
Was his immediate resignation approved?
Yes? Then no case.
No? Did you send a return-to-work order? And did you send a termination letter afterwards?

Cannot send RTWO since resignation is approved, ergo he is no longer employed with your company.
At best he will not YET receive his final pay until he comes for clearance, and turnover (in whatever way) any pending jobs, which I doubt can be done.

1st week: Return-to-work.
2nd week: Return-to-work.
3rd week: Termination letter.

Consult a lawyer.
Generally, the cost of these cases would not be worth the effort to have the former employee come in to turn over any pending tasks.
