According to the provisions of Article 38 of the Labor Code of Ukraine, an employee has the right at any time to terminate an employment contract concluded for an indefinite period by giving the employer a written notice two weeks before. Such an employer's notice of subsequent dismissal is the duty of the employee.

The right to leave at work is retained for a worker who has warned the owner or his authorized body of release on his own will, during the two-week period.

Therefore, the dismissal of an employee within a two-week period after filing an application for his release on his own will violates his right to withdraw such a statement and to remain at work.

The only exception is when another person was invited to his place, which, according to the law, can not be refused the conclusion of an employment contract.

This was indicated by the Supreme Court, maintaining the decision of the courts of the previous instances on the renewal of the employee who was dismissed in this way at work.
