What happened next to the employee who brought the employment to an end?

British Columbia, Canada


The following excerpt is from Pollock v. First Heritage Financial, 2002 BCSC 782 (CanLII):

What happened next is at the crux of the determination of who brought the employment to an end. The critical piece of evidence is the hastily drafted memorandum of March 28, 2000. The test to be applied in interpreting the memorandum is an objective one: given all the surrounding circumstances, would a reasonable person have understood from that memorandum that they had just resigned (Assouline v. Ogivar Inc., (1991), 39 C.C.E.L. 100 (B.C.S.C.) at 104)?
