Good day teachers!
I read in a report "Mr. Lopez is resigned from the service effective April 01, 2016". Is it correct to use is rather than has?. Thank you!
I am not a teacher.
The resigned word here couldn't be used as verb, could it? Then it must be used as adjective which I believe is incorrect. Am I right teacher? Thank you!
If the sentence were correct, then 'resigned' would be an adjective but the resulting sentence wouldn't be correct even if we accepted "is resigned" as a verb followed by an adjective. "To be resigned to" is used but has a completely different meaning.
The simplest version of your suggested sentence is:
Mr Lopez resigned from the company on April 1.
The original is very badly written. We don't say that someone "has resigned" from something on a date. We use the simple past.
Mr Lopez has resigned.
He resigned on April 1.
He will leave the company with effect from April 1.

Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
Thanks teachers. I just read it from a report from higher office and I get really confused.
