How much notice must an employee provide when resigning? After a recent British Columbia Supreme Court decision, this is a question that has received increased focus in recent months, for employees and employers alike. 


In the 2014 Consbec v. Walker, Peter Walker resigned from Consbec, his employer of five years, without providing any advance notice. Prior to resigning, Walker worked as Consbec’s western division manager and was the only employee in its B.C. office.
