Sample 1: “Resignation letter due to toxic 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.

Yours sincerely,

Sophie Vanderbilt

Sample 2: “Resignation letter due to toxic work environment”

“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.

Sincerely,

(Signature)

Denver Pole”

Sample 3: “Resignation letter due to toxic work environment”

“Dear Ms. Crystal,

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.

Best regards!”

Sample 4: “Resignation letter due to toxic work environment”

“Dear Mr. Smith —

This is my notice to resign from my position as Product Designer from Company Inc effective October 1st, 2020. I am providing no notice of my resignation and no transition period to my resignation as I have experienced frequent harassment from a coworker in the workplace. While I have not yet spoken with an attorney that practices state employment law, I plan on doing so.

The harassment has come in the form of constant sexual comments and uncomfortable mentions of my physical appearance. The initial claims were made to Human Resources, and attempts were made to handle the situation but have failed. I’m unable to produce results with this working condition. And I would constitute this a hostile environment that I must depart from.

Please consider this my formal resignation letter and notice, effective immediately.

Sincerely,

John”
