Employee resigning current position, just to apply for another one
Have you ever run into an employee resigning from a position due to the fact they are not able to post for a position at another office (this is due to our 12 month policy in which an employee must be in the current position for 12 months) and then turning around and applying for the position in which the management would not let them post for? The reason for not allowing the posting is not due to adverse reasons, more becasue they are a great employee and very needed in the current position, therefore the management was lucky to have a say in this case. Are we required to entertain the application? The candidate is well qualified and would likely be a great fit. Any thoughts?
