We draw up a dismissal order (form, form, sample)

When is the T-8 dismissal order form used?

An order for voluntary dismissal is issued on the basis of a corresponding application from the employee.
In this case, the dismissal order makes reference to clause 3, part 1, art. 77 Labor Code of the Russian Federation. Be sure to familiarize the dismissed employee with the order on the day of dismissal against signature. If an employee refuses to sign or there is no way to familiarize him with the order, a note about this is made on the document (Article 84.1 of the Labor Code of the Russian Federation). The T-8 dismissal order form is universal and can be used in various situations related to the dismissal of employees (meaning various grounds for dismissal).

Order T-8 is not the only document that is drawn up upon dismissal of one’s own free will. What other documents will be required, how to draw them up correctly and what other actions to take in connection with the dismissal, you can find out in ConsultantPlus. Get free access to the system and go to the Typical Situation.

The general grounds for termination of an employment contract (hereinafter referred to as TD) are listed in Art. 77 Labor Code of the Russian Federation. Upon dismissal, appropriate notes are made in the employee’s work book, as well as on his personal account / personal card (forms T-54 and T-2, respectively), indicating the date/number of the dismissal order. Also, a settlement is made with the dismissed employee using the T-61 form.

Documentation upon termination of a contract with an employee: procedure

The dismissal procedure requires compliance with all requirements in order to avoid mutual claims and problems between the employer and employee. The legislation establishes the following algorithm of actions upon termination of a contract :

  1. The employee writes a statement indicating the reason and date of termination of the employment relationship.
  2. The employer accepts the application and issues a dismissal order, which is signed by the employee.
  3. Compensation for unused vacation is calculated.
  4. Calculation is made for days worked.
  5. Personal income tax and insurance premiums are calculated on payments due to the employee.
  6. A record of dismissal from position is made in the personal card of the dismissed person.
  7. The final payment is made.
  8. An entry is made in the work book.
  9. On the day of dismissal, the employee is issued a work book, a certificate of salary for two years, a certificate of calculation of termination of employment, a dismissal order (you can view the full list of certificates upon dismissal from work here).
  10. At the employee's request, certified copies of other documents are provided - employment orders, information about vacations, etc. (what documents are issued upon dismissal?).

When an employee is dismissed at the initiative of the employer, a dismissal order is immediately issued, which must indicate the reason for the dismissal and the corresponding paragraph of Part 1 of Art. 81 Labor Code of the Russian Federation. When dismissal by agreement of the parties, the employer and employee sign a corresponding agreement, which determines the date of dismissal and makes reference to Art. 78 Labor Code of the Russian Federation.

Article 78 of the Labor Code of the Russian Federation. Termination of an employment contract by agreement of the parties

An employment contract can be terminated at any time by agreement of the parties to the employment contract.


The employee notifies the employer of his resignation in writing . The application is drawn up in any form, indicating:

  • position and full name of the manager;
  • dates of the last day of work;
  • reasons for dismissal;
  • dates of writing;
  • employee signatures.

The application can be delivered personally to the manager or sent by mail . The employer is obliged to accept the document, sign it and register it with the human resources department.

According to Art. 80 of the Labor Code of the Russian Federation, an employee has the right to withdraw an application at any time, up to the day of dismissal.

Notice periods

The warning period as a general rule is two weeks . It can be changed in the following cases:

  • If you dismiss at your own request during the probationary period - up to three calendar days (part 4 of article 71 of the Labor Code of the Russian Federation).
  • Upon termination of an employment contract with a manager - up to one month (Article 280 of the Labor Code of the Russian Federation).
  • Upon dismissal of a coach or athlete with whom a contract was concluded for a period of more than four months - up to one month (Part 1 of Article 348.12 of the Labor Code of the Russian Federation).
  • An increase in the period to one month may be provided for in the employment contract.

Article 280 of the Labor Code of the Russian Federation. Early termination of an employment contract at the initiative of the head of the organization

The head of the organization has the right to terminate the employment contract early by notifying the employer (the owner of the organization's property, his representative) in writing no later than one month in advance.

The warning period is counted from the date the application is received by the manager, and not from the date of writing. Therefore, when sending a document via mail, you should add the delivery time of the letter.

The Labor Code of the Russian Federation does not oblige an employee to work until the date of departure; the employee may be on sick leave or on vacation. Termination of an employment relationship is possible without work and before the expiration of a two-week period:

  • Mutual agreement of the parties.
  • Employee retirement.
  • The dismissed person is on parental leave for up to 1.5 years.

Termination of an employment contract must follow a certain procedure described in labor legislation, namely, in Article 80 of the Labor Code of the Russian Federation.

In two weeks (or less), the chief accountant must transfer his affairs (as well as all reporting documentation) to the new employee in his position, the CEO or owner of the company.


In the labor legislation of the Russian Federation there is no unified application form for voluntary dismissal.

However, there are some principles that need to be followed when resigning :

  1. The application must be handwritten (although even if it is typed on a computer and then printed, it must be accepted for registration).
  2. The application must be written in the name of the employer or his authorized representative, for example, the general director, who is an employee.

In the upper right corner you need to indicate:

  • Full name and position of the person in whose name the application is written.
  • Name of the employer, indicating the organizational and legal form.
  • Full name indicating the position of the person making the application.

After which, in the middle of the page you should write the word “Statement”. After it, the very essence of this document is written. In the case of a resignation letter, you must indicate the following :

  1. The day on which the employee wishes to resign.
  2. For what reason does the employee want to leave (in this case - “At his own request”).
  3. If there is some unused vacation and you want to use it, then write about it.
  4. Date of.
  5. Applicant's signature.

After which the resulting application is sent to the employer or to the personnel department. It is advisable to make two copies of the application so that on one of them the recipient puts a mark with the number of the incoming document and, of course, his signature.

If this is not possible, the application should be sent by registered mail.

How to fill out an order

The dismissal order is drawn up by a personnel employee. In the column in which the basis for termination of the trade union must be indicated, the exact wording of the reason for dismissal must be given with reference to the norm of the Labor Code of the Russian Federation. In the line where the basis document should be described, its name and details are indicated in the form of number and date. For example, this could be a statement from the employee himself, a memo, a medical report, a summons to the army, etc.

If an order is drawn up to dismiss a materially responsible person, it will need to be accompanied by documentary evidence of the absence of property claims against the dismissed employee. If the dismissal order is issued on the initiative of the company’s management, then the opinion of the trade union of this organization (if it has been created and is functioning) is attached to the order.

Dismissal at the initiative of the employer

It is impossible to fire the chief accountant (like any other employee) simply because of personal hostility. A reason is required for termination of the employment contract by the employer. What is called, “according to the article” .

Not long ago they wrote on “Clerk” that the head of the HR department was looking for ways to fire the chief accountant only because she wanted an increase in salary due to the assignment of additional responsibilities. Moreover, in essence, there was nothing to undermine the work - the chief accountant performed her duties without complaints.

But if the chief accountant is still unscrupulous, then the Labor Code has a basis enshrined in clause 5, part 1, art. 81 Labor Code (repeated failure to fulfill labor duties).

Another reason is the adoption by the chief accountant of a decision that led to a violation of the safety of property , its unlawful use or other damage to the company’s property (clause 9, part 1, article 81 of the Labor Code of the Russian Federation).

If the chief accountant combines work with servicing inventory (for example, he is also a cashier), then the grounds for dismissal under clause 7.1, part 1, art. 81 TK. Due to loss of trust .

Another option is to reduce the accounting department in principle, with the aim of outsourcing accounting .

In all other cases, including the famous “write your own way,” there is a risk for the employer of going to court, being forced to return the fired employee to his position, and paying average earnings for the period of wrongful dismissal.

How long to work

One of the key questions that concerns an employee—how much work to do when leaving voluntarily—is not difficult. The established period is two weeks, but by agreement with the employer the employment contract can be terminated earlier. In accordance with Letter of Rostrud No. 1551-6 dated September 05, 2006, the deadline for dismissal at one’s own request begins the next day after the employer receives the application. The duration of the period is two weeks. Therefore, if the application is sent by mail, it is necessary to take into account the time it takes to deliver the postal item.

If the employer receives a document whose date does not correspond to a two-week period, he can:

  • agree and resign on the date specified in the application;
  • disagree and warn the employee about it.

When it is impossible for an employee to continue working (enrollment in an educational organization, retirement and other cases) and in cases of established violation by the employer of the Labor Code of the Russian Federation and other regulatory legal acts, local regulations, conditions of a collective agreement, agreement or employment contract, the employer is obliged to terminate the employment contract within the period specified in the application.
