Notice of resignation, Business Law and Ethics

Notice of resignation:

Regarding clause (e) above, it was held in Latchford Premier Cinema Co. V Ennion that a verbal notice of resignation which is given to, and is accepted by, the general meeting is effective and cannot be withdrawn. This is so because the general meeting would be deemed to have amended the company's articles by deleting the words "in writing". By implication, a purported oral notice of resignation which is given to, and purportedly accepted by, the board of directors would be invalid since the directors cannot legally alter the company's articles of association.

Regarding clause (f) , it should be noted that it does not say that the director in question shall vacate office if he "absents himself". Such a provision would have disqualified the director only if the absence in question was voluntary, as in cases where he was ill and could not attend the board meetings. On the other hand, the office would be vacated if the director was absent because his doctor had advised him to go abroad on medical grounds: McConnel's Claim.
