We have an employee who has worked with us for about 3 months. There was no agreement signed as the employee was not sure of wanting to continue work and has been absent on and off regularly citing many personal excuses. Last month in May, she worked for 18 days and just didnt turn up for work after that. She has sms us a message saying she has decided to quit immediately and would like us to remit her pay into her bank account. Should we pay her? If we should pay her, how much of her pay should we pay? She was informed verbally few times that she has to give notice before she leaves or we will deduct 1 weeks wages. Does verbal notice have any effect according to Labour Law?

Thank you for your help.

Since she has resigned without giving any notice, withhold her salary, don't pay her.

She has turned bitter and threatened Labour Dept and Labour Laws on us. We can't seem to find any guidelines of employees resigning without notice and what are the entitlements on the employer in cases like these. Does she have a case?
