The majority vote of the Board will determine if it was a resignation or not. in state of california i gave my verbal resignation du to a heat of the moment i was provoqued by my manager that told me the cie might be not for me so you should quit and i quit i changed my mind 20 minutes later now hr contacted me and asked me questions details now i am still currently employed but at home until further notice of their decision do i still to keep my job ? Unfortunately, a letter of resignation does not comply with the official legal requirements of a formal termination of contract, meaning it’s not legally binding: the law requires that a termination of contract must be written and signed by hand. A verbal resignation also fails to meet these requirements. The fact that it was not written would be irrelevant as it was done in a convened board meeting. Rule of thumb; never tell your employer you will resign *if* unless you are prepared to be taken at your word. My answer is not intended to be giving legal advice and this topic can be a complex area where the advice of a licensed attorney in your State should be obtained. No state requires that a resignation be in writing. The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise.
