Company refusing to give release due to close contact with Shoun

Please I’m sorry for disturbing you again … please reply to my previous question if the company has the right not to release the employee even if she’s working 10 consecutive years in the company … because the company said I cannot resign until February 2018 because of their close contacts from shoun.

Answer: No, the company has no right to deny you a release. We make this assertion on the assumption that you have an open-ended contract with your company. If our assumption is correct, then we advise that if you still intend to resign, go ahead and do it and give them the 3-month mandatory notice. If the company insists on not accepting your resignation, file a complaint with Ministry of Social Affairs and Labour through the Labour Department in your area. Forget about the so-called contacts your company has with ‘shoun’, for these contacts, cannot stand in your way when the law is on your side.
