Hi my name is ***** ***** I am happy to help you today. When they walked off site did they say it was their intention to resign or are you terminating their employment because they refused to work?

The difference in this will depend on whether they are due notice or not. IF you have terminated them then, as they have been employed over 1 month, they are entitled to a weeks' notice pay. If they have decided to leave and declined to work notice then no notice money is due.

If they have not taken annual leave then they are entitled to a payment of accrued untaken holiday pay. The minimum is 28 days per annum so you will need to pro-rata this down for the number of weeks they have worked.

If you have any further questions please do ask. If I have answered your question I would be grateful if you would take the time to rate my answer. Thank you and all the best.
