Question: If an employee indicates a retirement date and the employer plans accordingly, does the employer have any recourse if the employee changes his mind and doesn’t retire as planned?

Answer: When an employee provides notification to her employer of an intention to retire from employment as of a certain date, it is in legal terms the same as a notification of resignation of employment.
