[Phone number]

[Email]

[Date]

[Immediate Supervisor]

Through this letter, I am informing the management of [xyz company] that I am resigning from my post of [abc] which I have served for [no.] years. I will be completing my two-week notice period which will make [date] my last working day at the company.

My departure from the company comes as a result of the merger between [xyz company] and [jkl company]. As I fear too many company changes due to this merger, which might make the work environment unsuitable for me, I feel that this is the right time to depart from [xyz company].

I wish to thank each and every employee at [xyz company] who have contributed in some way or the other to my journey here. I also thank [Person name] who has been my guide at [xyz company] and has led me through some confusing times. I wish [xyz company] all the best in its future endeavors.

Sample 2: Resignation letter due to a merger”

The following resignation letter format is for an employee who is resigning from the organization as they do not approve of the merger happening.

[Name]

[Address, zip code]

[Phone number]

[Email]

[Date]

[Immediate Supervisor]

Through this letter, I am informing you that I am leaving [xyz company] from the post of [abc] with effect from [date]. As of my last day at the company, I have certain open tasks that need to be taken care of with priority. These are:

[Task 1]

[Task 2]

[Task 3]

My departure from the company comes much sooner than expected as I originally wished to have a much longer and more fulfilling career at the company. However, due to the upcoming merger between [xyz company] and [jkl company], I fear that I must depart immediately.

 I and several other senior employees have repeatedly raised our voices against the merger, which is bound to take away many jobs and create a negative work environment for the workers. Our protests have fallen on deaf ears and therefore I see no other choice but to leave [xyz company].

I thank [Person 1] and [Person 2] who have showered me with many opportunities throughout my many years at [xyz company]. I also wish to thank my team who has been with me through thick and thin. I finally thank the management for allowing me to be an integral part of such an esteemed organization. I humbly request that my last paycheck be sent to my home address which is on the personnel files.

Best regards,

[Name]

Sample 3: “Resignation letter due to a merger”

This resignation letter sample is for an employee who is resigning from their job at the organization as their position has been changed after the merger.

[Name]

[Address, zip code]

[Phone number]

[Email]

[Date]

[Immediate Supervisor]

I am saddened to inform you that I am leaving [xyz company] after serving here for [no.] years. I will be completing my two-week notice period at the company which will make [date] my last working day here.

It is definitely heartbreaking to leave the organization where I have worked for such a long time, but in light of recent events, I think it is best that I leave. As you may or may not know, I have been working as [abc] before the merger between [xyz company] and [jkl company], which was changed to [123] after it without my consultation. I find this insulting and demoting for such a senior employee like myself.

After consulting my family, I feel that this is the right time for departing from [xyz company] and seeking employment elsewhere. I thank the management of the company for providing me with means to learn and earn all these years. I also thank each and every employee and wish them success in all their future endeavors.

Best regards,

[Name]
