I resigned from two companies when I worked in Brazil and in both cases they demanded that I write a resignation letter by hand. In both cases the human resources department would not accept a letter typed then signed and they did not provide a template when I requested and did not explain why. Is there any law preventing them from accepting a typed letter, providing a template, or explaining why?
My impression is that they needed a letter in my words and having it handwritten would be a evidence that the resignation was totally at my will and that I was not coerced in doing so. Is this like that in other jurisdictions (handwritten letter as evidence of no coercion)?
