In this brief blog post, we will provide examples of a resignation letter due to bad work environment.
Resignation letter due to bad work environment
A resignation letter due to bad work environment for some people can be a very hard letter to write.
Despite the circumstances and how dissatisfied you feel due to a bad work environment, it is recommended to give a professional closure to your work relationship.
A bad work environment could be related to an unhealthy or conflictive relationship with your boss or a colleague, verbal abuse, harassment, being disrespected, among others.
Consequently, if you have tried to get into an agreement with your employer to improve the bad conditions in the workplace environment and it is still the same (no action taken from HR or management) or worse, then, it is only expected to hand in your resignation letter.
The following examples reflect the dissatisfaction an employee might feel due to bad work environment conditions.
Sample 1 resignation letter due to bad work environment
Dear Mr./Ms. Manager:
It is with reluctance that I submit this letter. Although my time with (company name) has been, on the whole, satisfying and productive, for quite a while now I have become less and less satisfied with the work situation. The direction of the company, the group in which I work, and the new targets and the methods of accomplishing them have made it increasingly difficult to feel I’m contributing enough.
Therefore, it is with regret that I ask you to accept this letter of resignation from (company name) effective (last day of work).

Sample 2 resignation letter due to bad work environment
“Dear Mr. Coursey,
I am sending this letter to inform you of my immediate resignation from my position as project manager at ABC Company. Unfortunately, this resignation is due to the hostile work environment I have been experiencing since the recent promotion I received. The rest of the employees have behaved increasingly hostile to me since I was promoted over them and I can no longer keep coming into the office under these conditions. I will not be coming back into work so please accept this letter as my official notice of resignation from ABC Company.
I apologize for any inconvenience that my resignation may cause to ABC Company. It is my hope that by bringing this situation to your attention, some type of action can be taken to prevent this from happening to the next person who steps into my position. If you would like to discuss this with me further, please contact me at (555)-555-5555 or [email]
Although I am very upset at the situation that has necessitated my resignation, I am glad for the business experience I have earned by working at ABC Company up until now and know that it will serve me well in my next job. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation in this matter.

Sample 3 resignation letter due to bad work environment
“434 Example Street
Martinez, CA 12411
March 25, 2019
Mr. Jaden Smith
102 Trinity Circle
Martinez, CA 45021
Dear Mr. Smith:
I would like to inform you of my decision to resign from the position of Sales Manager for Macy Works, on a two-weeks notice, effective April 8. This notice period is in accordance with the terms and conditions charted out in my employment letter.
As I have mentioned several times, both verbally an in writing, my work is being adversely affected by the unhealthy conditions prevalent in the office. Since I am supposed to be working with a team of people who are not very good at providing directions, I am afraid that this situation is making me come out (wrongly) as someone who is unable to work properly.
Not only is this situation hindering my work, it is also making me nervous and unable to meet deadlines, which is a great cause of concern for me. Since I have made several attempts to rectify this situation over the last 3 years, and have been unable to resolve it through dialogue with the management, I believe that I should move on.
It would be a great kindness if you could process my leaving documents immediately so that this transition can take place without problems. On a completely different note, I am grateful for the opportunity to work here, and anticipate a future liaison if circumstances change.
Sample 4 resignation letter due to bad work environment
“The reason behind taking the action is nonstop hostile work environment I am encountering for past two years since I got promoted over them with whom I used to work once. I wrote to you many times the things getting worst and messed up badly for me, but you didn’t pay much attention to my concerns. Now it has become impossible for me to continue with this job at any cost since it is affecting my mental solace badly.
I am turning a patient of high blood pressure issues because of the bad environment I am facing consistently here. I cannot take this toll anymore. Contrary to it, I am grateful to you for providing me with the chance to work under your supervision which was a great deal & would be of great assistance in my new job.
Side Note: I have tried and tested various products and services to help with my anxiety and depression. See my top recommendations here, as well as a full list of all products and services our team has tested for various mental health conditions and general wellness.
