You might think the suggestion would save them face but one leading employment lawyer says it’s not that straight-forward.

    This is something I have always wondered about in terms of why employers' would ask someone to resign. I can see having a discussion in the right context, about whether they are happy working in the organization, but I would not think 'telling' some to resign is a good idea. Regardless of the circumstances.

    Could anyone refer me to the federal law that grants employees who quit in the heat of the moment several days to change their mind?

    There is no federal law that allows employees to change their minds; but there is case law that illustrates that someone quitting in an emotional state or in the heat of the moment may not be fully comprehending what they've done. Take a read of this.
