Separation From Employment: Alaska

Separation From Employment requirements for other states

Federal law and guidance on this subject should be reviewed together with this section.

Author: Brightmine Editorial Team


  • Employment relationships in Alaska are presumed to be at-will, meaning they can be terminated by either party, at any time, with or without cause. See Employment At-Will.
  • Alaska employers must provide a separation notice to employees at the time of their separation from employment. See Separation Notice.
  • Alaska employees who provide advance notice of resignation are not protected by legislation requiring employers to retain them beyond the date of resignation. See Notice of Resignation.
  • Alaska's definition of forced resignation or constructive discharge largely mirrors federal law, but the analysis of constructive discharge claims is somewhat different than the analysis in other states. See Constructive Discharge.
  • Terminated employees must be paid within a certain amount of time after the termination date. See Termination Pay.
