Notice Period for Resignation during Covid-19

QUESTION

Dear HR Community

When an employee tenders his resignation during this Circuit Breaker period (8 April to 1 June), can this lockdown period be used to serve the notice period of the staff resignation?

We are in a non-essential service industry hence have stopped operations since 7th April 2020.

Appreciate your advice on this.

During Circuit Breaker period, all our employees work from home.

Therefore, when an employee tenders his resignation notice during this lockdown period, we still allow him to serve notice as per usual.

I had a similar case. Through a mutual agreement with the employee, he brought forward his last day due to the current circumstances, since it defeats the purpose of serving notice when there is no work.
