Leave a job on good terms

Abridged: Workplacefairness.org

SAN JOSE, CA — Leaving a job is one of life’s more stressful events. Whether we are leaving of our own accord or have been asked to leave, we often hold more cards than we may realize. The majority of employers would prefer that you leave the company with positive things to say about them “good will– as it were.

Additionally, they may want specific projects completed before you go and/or the ability to call you in future to inquire about specific aspects of your job. As long as you are being reasonable, the kinds of things you need as a departing employee are generally easy enough for your employer to give.

Therefore you have a good shot at getting what you need. It is essential, first and foremost, that you know what you need, secondly, that you ask for it in a reasonable and considered way, and thirdly, that you fulfill your end of the bargain. In return, your employer will no doubt honor his end of the bargain on your behalf.
