Our Ending Employment Bundle contains:
Certificate of Service
Use this certificate to outline the employment details of an employee when they leave your business. The Certificate of Service is extremely useful if the employee is leaving due to termination or dismissal.
If you agree to provide a verbal reference for an employee, you are agreeing to say positive things about the person to any employer calling you for the reference. However, you are not obliged to be a referee if you do not feel comfortable doing so. In this instance, you can provide the employee with a Certificate of Service confirming state and finish dates with your company.

The employee has a right to a formal confirmation of the time he or she was employed by your business, and the position that was held, but does not have a right to a verbal reference.
Exit Interview Template
When an employee leaves your organisation, a useful HR tool to have in place is an exit interview.
This will help you to understand why they are leaving - was it their choice or was it due to a termination or dismissal. What was working well and what could be improved. Confirm the attributes, skill set and attitude you require for the role.
Employees do sometimes move on, much as you would like the great ones to stay and grow. Your business changes all the times as it matures and grows. This means your employee requirement changes also. When an employee leaves your business, it really is a good opportunity to get feedback from them on their experience in your business, with a view to step up in the future, rescope their role before recruiting and perhaps reexamine your person specification. Two people in the same job will not deliver the same output. The more structure you put in the role, the greater your success in getting results from employees is likely to be.
Use this exit interview template with every employee who leaves. You will find helpful information across the collective interviews.
A resignation checklist is a useful tool to ensure all systems, projects and client handover, security and company property are organised before the employees departure. Typically panic sets in with many business owners when an employee resigns, especially if it is unexpected, and this comprehensive checklist ensures everything is covered before their departure.
If the employment has been terminated or the employee dismissed it ensures nothing is missed or forgotten.
There are a lot of things that you need to be able to remember to cover with an employee about to leave your company. Sometimes notice periods are shortened for various reasons - or in the instance of employee dismissal or failure to give required notice, employers tend to focus on filling the position, and remove focus from the outgoing person, who may have company property, or even keys and company property that requires receipting in.
Using this HR template resignation checklist will enable you to easily check off all the requirement, without stress or fuss and more easily focus on the future.
In the event of a resignation, you may also wish to consider the Job Analysis to see if the position has any new or changed requirements that you need to consider as you move into recruitment or restructure mode.
