Resignation from work should only be as stipulated by Law

An employee cannot resign from employment by whim and he or she must follow the stipulated requirements in Law.. Labor laws in Kenya on resignation are Under the Employment Act, sections 14(5) and 16, where it is provided that an employee can only resign legally when they give a notice period which is determined by the period of time of which they had to wait before getting next salary. In Catherine Wayua Mutua v Dazzle Creation Limited [2017] eKLR the court allowed the respondents counterclaim which pleaded that the Claimant had effectively left the Respondent’s employment without notice and she was therefore liable to pay the equivalent of one (1) month’s salary in lieu of notice.
