In this brief blog post, we will provide examples of a resignation letter due to disrespect.

Resignation letter due to disrespect

A resignation letter due to disrespect can be written full of negative situations and can have an emotional toll.

However,  it is always recommended to write a resignation letter in the most professional and respectful way, even if the experiences were somehow negative. 

When presenting the facts or the reason why you are resigning remember to do it with the appropriate language and facts related.

In addition, before writting the resignation letter due to disrespect you could try to talk to your HR department or try by other ways to solve the conflict this is creating.

Although, sometimes when all the options have been exhausted, resigning seems to be the only way. 

Here are some samples you can use and modify at your convenience when writing a resignation letter due to disrespect.

Mr. Lincoln Cord


Pearl Hosts Inc.

Martinez, CA 02100

Dear Mr. Cord:

Regretfully, I inform you of my decision to resign from my position as Administrative Assistant for Pearl Hosts Inc. As charted out in my contract, I am providing you with a 14-days notice of my intention to leave. Please note that April 7 will be my last working day.

While I have spent a wonderful 6 years working for Pearl Hosts Inc, I am afraid that I cannot continue any longer. The fact that my work is constantly criticized by a colleague, and the authorities’ limitations in addressing the issue, is perhaps the reason behind this decision.

In fact, I do not want to condemn the way the human resource department is handling things as I understand how tiresome managing conflicts can be. However, this situation is adversely affecting my ability to concentrate on work, which may result in poor outcomes.

I would appreciate it if you would expedite my leaving documents and last salary as soon as possible, to ensure that this transition is made easy for both ends. I am grateful to you for giving me the chance to work here, and for providing me with an opportunity to develop my skills. I anticipate working with you soon, should circumstances favor us.

“Experiences over the past several months convince me that I must resign from my position as counselor, effective no later than two weeks from today. When I was initially hired at Doe Corporation, I thought that this was a company believed, as I did, that the relationship between a company and its employees should be mutually beneficial. Poor wages, infrequent raises, uncompensated overtime, routine layoffs, and an excessive workload have convinced me otherwise. Therefore, I can no longer work for a company that clearly undervalues the worth of its employees.

I want to thank you, however, for being a wonderful supervisor. I appreciate the time you took to discuss my concerns with me. I know you did everything you could to improve our working conditions, but the fact that your efforts have been persistently ignored by upper management is indicative that things are not about to change in the near future. I sincerely hope that my resignation does not adversely reflect upon you in any way.

Two weeks should provide adequate time for me to complete my assignments. According to current policy, I suspect my duties will be assimilated in the usual way. Nonetheless, I will gladly ensure that my more difficult accounts are settled before I leave.”

Sample 3

“Regretfully I inform you that I must resign from my position as a counselor, effective immediately.

Three weeks ago, my supervisor informed me that a co-worker was criticizing my work. According to my superiors, she gained access to my personal files and work bins. She then alerted my supervisor and the office manager about my supposed violations of company policy and file errors. Although I may have erred unintentionally, I think it is inexcusable to allow another employee to rummage through my area without my consent. Your unwillingness to challenge this violation of my privacy makes it impossible for me to feel secure working at Doe Corporation any longer.

Because I have enjoyed working here up to this time, my decision to resign is not taken lightly. The work is both exciting and challenging. During my tenure I have gained important skills that will be useful in years to come.

I regret that these circumstances make it necessary for me to leave abruptly. In order to allow my successor to assume my duties without undue effort, however, I am leaving detailed instructions that explain each of my responsibilities in detail.”

Sample 4

“Please accept this letter as official notification of my intent to resign from my position as a counselor, effective two weeks from today.

Ever since Doe Corporation hired a new manager, I have been in turmoil. The relationship between employee and manager should be one of mutual respect and support. Instead, our current manager uses bullying and verbal abuse as a management style. Unfortunately, these tactics directly oppose my personal business philosophy, which advocates a more sensitive approach. Not only is it unconscionable for me to work in such a hostile environment, it is also physically and mentally debilitating to work under such stressful circumstances.

Resigning for these reasons is extremely disconcerting but, given the circumstances, I don’t feel I have much choice. Senior management does not seem troubled by John’s inappropriate behavior toward his employees and I, therefore, doubt that changes are imminent. These present difficulties do not negate the fact that I have derived much enjoyment in years past from my employment here. Also, the training I received here is superior to that of other companies. These considerations make this decision especially difficult. I sincerely hope to find another position as rewarding as this one has been.

Two weeks should be ample time for me to orient a replacement as well as to fulfill my obligations. If I can do anything else to facilitate an orderly transfer of duties, please let me know as soon as possible.”
