Resignation Effective Date

Mon, 19 Aug 2019 11:12:51 AM  (Last updated: Mon, 19 Aug 2019 04:20:40 PM)

Hi all,

I resigned on 17th August 2019 (Saturday), so I thought my last day should be on 16th September 2019 (Monday).

However, HR feedback that my last day should be 19th September 2019 (Thursday) instead.

Who is correct?

Thank you in advance.

You resigned on 17th Aug and rightfully your last official day will be 16th Sep (31 days)

How and when did you notify your employer? Did you hand it in, to your supervisor or HR in writing personally on 17th Aug (Sat)? Do you have an acknowledgment of this notification?

It looks like HR is taking 20th Aug (Tue) as the start date for your resignation. If they are taking it as 20th Aug (Tue) then the last official day should be 19th Sep. somehow something is wrong here?? Please double check with HR.

The point I am trying to make - the letter of resignation should be delivered to the appropriate superior or HR and the recipient should record or stamp the date and time of receipt of such letter. This will avoid any misunderstandings as to when exactly notice was served.
