letter template Resignation letter during parental leave You were on parental leave and at the end of it you do not wish to return to your job. You will in fact submit your resignation while on parental leave. What is the procedure to follow in this situation? What documents do you need to have and/or present to your employer? Or can you resign during your parental leave? The legal procedureArticle L1237-1 of the French Labor Code states that your request for resignation must respect the notice period specified in your employment contract or collective agreement. However, you can ask your employer for a reduction or a dispensation. But if an amicable agreement cannot be reached, your employment contract will be terminated only at the end of the notice period. In other words, if your notice period does not end at the end of your parental leave, you are required to return to your job until your notice period ends. It's true that returning to your job after a long absence may not make sense. It is therefore highly likely that your employer will agree to a request to waive your notice period. This is especially true if you have given reasonable notice (at least 15 days). The sample letter of resignation that we offer takes this into account. If you have any doubts about your obligations and rights, you can consult the labor inspectorate or the company's personnel representatives. After resigning during a parental leave, you have a "priority to be rehired" status for a period of one year after your departure. The position you hold in this situation should match your qualifications. You must apply to your employer for this priority of reemployment, which will then be sent to you by registered mail with return receipt. If you are rehired, you will receive all the benefits you had at the time of your departure.
