This question already has an answer here:
I've been with my company for 15 years and have just resigned b/c I'm moving to another city. I provided them with two months notice. My employer wants to delay announcing my departure to staff by three weeks b/c there has been a recent number of departures and they are concerned about the optics (from a board of directors and staff perspective) of another long-term employee leaving. I think their hope is that by delaying my resignation announcement they will have more of a buffer between staff departure announcements and compartmentalize the damage control required. My question is - is it fair for them to ask me to wait to announce my leaving? I have a team that I will need to train and a number of projects to tie up and not being able to start that process puts considerable pressure on me and the staff that will take on my work.
