Sample 1:

“Dear [Recipients Name],

Due to sudden events, I am forced to inform you of my resignation from the post of_________.

Disappointing and unexpected circumstances demand that I submit my resignation from my position. The reason behind my resignation is that I have recently been receiving a lot of anonymous messages, and emails that are all very demotivating in nature.

I believe that my recent speech about employees violating the company policy has caused this. These threats have been taking a toll on me and my work, and I am getting very stressed about these events.

I leave the company immediately lest anything bad happens to me. I appreciate the opportunities that you have given me over the years.


Sample 2:

“Dear Ms. Greeley,

I am writing this letter because I am forced to notify you of my involuntary resignation from my position at ABC Company. This involuntary resignation will come into effect immediately and I will not be returning to the office. I have received a number of anonymous notes and calls which are suspicious and/or threatening in nature, and I believe that they are a result of my recent communications about certain employees committing violations of company policies.

As you may already be aware, harassment of this nature is very stressful and causes a toll to be taken on my mental and physical health as well as work performance. I could not possibly return to work with this harassment unresolved. If you need to discuss this with me any further, you may contact me by phone at (555)-555-5555 and leave a message or email me at [email] and I will get back with you.

It is my hope that this situation may be resolved by any means necessary and that no other honest team members receive similar negative treatment. I have otherwise enjoyed my time with ABC Company and will remember the good times. I am grateful for the valuable experience I have gained from working there and will carry it with me into all future endeavors. I wish you and ABC Company every success. Thank you for your understanding in this matter.

Yours sincerely,

Jennifer Miller

Nelson Riddle

Human Resources Manager, GTR Incorporated

City, State, Zip Code

Dear Mr. Riddle,

This letter is to inform you that I am forced to resign my position as administrative assistant for GTR Incorporated effective immediately. This involuntary resignation is the result of harassment that I have endured for six months now and I can no longer allow this to be a part of my life.

I first informed you and several other managers of my situation when it began six months ago. Since then, the company has done nothing to remedy the situation and it is only getting worse the longer I stay at the company. I am now getting sexually explicit messages and emails sent to me by multiple offenders and I cannot work under these conditions.

I have contacted an attorney and I will be filing suit immediately. I have copies of all of the correspondence I have sent to the management team and copies of the responses I received. I am sorry that it has come to this, but I was left with no other options. I will not be able to contact you, nor will you be able to contact me directly. Please feel free to contact my attorney at 000-000-0000 if you have any questions.

Sincerely Yours,

Stacey T. Adams”

Sample 4:

“January 3, 2020

Dear Mr Hernandez,

I regret to submit my resignation from my position as marketing manager at Advertising, Inc. My last day of employment will be January 4, 2020. 

Due to the unforeseen backlash of last quarter’s marketing campaign, management recommended that I resign from my position at the company. I am disappointed by the outcome of the events, but I understand that Advertising, Inc. is looking to reform its marketing efforts going forward.

I am grateful for my time here. This position has helped me pinpoint my talents and my areas for improvement. I will use what I learned as a marketing manager in my future endeavors.

Upon my resignation, the company still owes me 24 hours of paid time off. The human resources department and I communicated this already, and they will add the equivalent payment to my final paycheck. The marketing team will take over all of my correspondence with clients and create a plan to move forward in my absence.

Thank you for this opportunity, and I wish the company nothing but the best.
