Abandonment of employment is a form of termination of employment at the employee’s initiative. Abandonment of employment occurs when an employee does not attend work for a prolonged period without prior notice or reasonable explanation, i.e. the employee indicates that they do not intend to return to work.

This policy has been developed to assist Ai Group members in addressing and developing procedures around abandonment of employment.

For further information see the article Abandonment of employment and the Abandonment of Employment Letters.

This policy is a sample only. Employers should seek advice from the Ai Group in tailoring this policy to the needs of the business. 

Guidance notes and instructions are shown italicised.
