Resigning from the job Today I got a request that our work comp client resign from the employment as part of an otherwise favorable settlement of a work comp case. This is an awkward situation.  Clients hire us to handle their work comp case.  However, some employers insist upon settlements that involve resigning the employment.  This is close to improper conduct by the employer, but in reality it happens all the time.  They want you to resign, and they will pay money on the work comp case to do it. Is it a good idea?  That is the real dilemma.  Sometimes the worker wants to leave so the resignation makes sense.  But other times there is no desire to leave.  These situations require a lot of strategy and planning.  I wish there was a simple answer to the resignation question but each case is so complex that they have to be handled slowly and carefully.  Call to discuss any specific problems you might be having.
