Sub: Resignation letter due to Delay in Salary

Dear (Sir),

I had previously written you an email regarding the delay in my salary. It has been five months (more/less) now since I have been paid with so many delays. I was very upset because of this and wanted to take this up with you before. (Describe in your own words). But it seems like you never took any notice of this.

We all work for money and we depend on this income. By the start of every month, common people have bills to pay and meet all their needs. (Explain actual cause and situation). I am working only one job at a time, which means I am completely depending on this money. (Explain all about the situation). Not getting my salary on time creates a lot of financial constraint on me. I had requested you before as well to pay me my salary on time. (Briefly describe your requirements).

Sample 4 resignation letter due to salary delay

“I have been so busy with my hectic schedule that I wasn’t able to see you for days. As you know, I have been a very avid student and always put my best efforts in my studies no matter what. But it seems like my job is coming my way now.

Since past six months, I have been working ten hours rather than eight. I have been trying to control my workload but no success. Due to which, my lectures have been suffering badly. Last month, I applied for a study leave which was rejected. Therefore, I have taken the decision to resign from my job to prepare for my exams. Once, I am done with my exams, I can consider restarting the job again with you if an opportunity comes up. Thank you for all your support and learning.”

Sample 5 resignation letter due to salary delay

“I am writing this letter to inform you regarding my resignation. This job was a great learning experience for me. I enjoyed my stay and made great friends. But that is not the only reason to stick to a job. We all work for money and money is one of the biggest incentives for doing a job.

I have small kids who are school going. Meeting their expenses is my foremost priority. If I do not get paid at all, this not only creates a stress for me but also disturbs my family. This is my only source of income and I depend on it completely. I tried to raise this issue before as well. But I have taken the decision to resign from this job. Please find my resignation attached and let me know the things on my part to complete the process.

With thanks”
