Have rules for resignations

THE spate of resignations that hit the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs in the past two months has crossed 18, and many of those who quit are senior officials. The resignations, triggered by the decree issued by the Minister that work permits taken out by the employees must be referred to him, would have undoubtedly had an impact on the functioning of the Ministry.

This is a matter of serious concern, and raises several issues. If the employees consider resignation as their right because of the decree issued by the Minister, it is perhaps justifiable since the very move is to ensure transparency in functioning. But if the resignations have had an adverse impact on the functioning of the Ministry, the matter needs to be viewed in all seriousness. It is, perhaps, time to consider rules and regulations governing resignations to ensure that the functioning of the Ministry is not disrupted due to employees leaving jobs. This should be made applicable to all the Ministries and Departments, and for that a comprehensive study is the need of the hour.
