A “voluntary” resignation is usually anything but. This issue tends to come up when the company has already decided to fire the employee.
As this process starts, a few points become immediately clear:
- A Voluntary Resignation is ALWAYS better than being fired;
- If you sense that you are being targeted for removal, you are almost always correct;
- Finding a job while out of work is exponentially more difficult than finding one while employed;
- Companies enjoy a supreme advantage over you as an “employee” in negotiation;
- No matter the righteousness of your claims against your employer, companies can survive the duration of these issues far longer than a (former) employee;
- If any second language is involved, finding competent Japanese legal representation will be difficult.
