Resignation letter due to verbal abuse

A resignation letter due to verbal abuse can be difficult to write, especially because it can evoke many emotions.

Being in a position where you have been verbally abused in your workplace can be very uncomfortable, confusing and outrageous for some.

This is not expected behavior in the workplace since we all think professional relationships are based on respect, courtesy, and professionalism. 

In some cases, when you have exhausted all the options, for instance, talking to the HR department and nothing seems to have worked then, the only available option seems to resign.

Take into consideration that verbal abuse is as hurtful as physical abuse and should not be tolerated under any circumstance. 

Here we have some examples of resignation letters due to verbal abuse you can use and adapt to your specific circumstance.  

Sample 1 resignation letter due to verbal abuse

“This letter serves you as my resignation from the position of [INSERT DESIGNATION] from the company [INSERT NAME] effective [DATE].

I am very sorry to say that the environment of the workplace is not up to the mark and constructive at all. Though I am a newcomer to this company, this period is enough to understand the surroundings. I had no idea that abusing here is considered as a part of fun even during working hours which made me think otherwise.

Earning a good sum of money is not the only purpose of joining a company. In fact, a well-reputed organization teaches you professionalism and ethics and makes you an amazing person inside out.

In this company, from supervisors to the subordinates all use abusive language which negates mannerism and annihilates the decorum of organization.

This misconduct has affected me in a very negative way and therefore I have decided not to be a part of this firm anymore.

Undoubtedly, I learned many techniques and good things too in this short span and those will always benefit me in one way or the other. I am very thankful to you for that.”

Sample 2 resignation letter due to verbal abuse

“Dear Mr. Hamilton,

I am writing this letter to let you know that due to the verbal abuse that I have received since being recently promoted to assistant manager, I am hereby resigning from my job at Smith Communications. I have been subject to verbal abuse, threatening messages and other harassment since my promotion and can no longer bear the stress I am suffering in the workplace. My last day will be June 8, 2014, so please accept this letter as my official one weeks’ notice of resignation.

I apologize for any inconvenience my resignation may cause. I will not be returning to the office at all, but will fax over my current project as soon as it is completed. It is my hope that by bringing this incident to your attention, further harassment to future employees can be spared. If you wish to discuss this matter with me further, feel free to contact me at (555)-555-5555 or [email]

I do appreciate all of the valuable experience I have earned while working at Smith Communications and know that it will serve me well in future endeavors. I wish the company continued success and thank you for your understanding and patience with me during this time.

Yours sincerely,

Michelle A. Banks

Assistant Manager

Smith Communications”

Sample 3 resignation letter due  to unfair treatment

“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.”

“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 fulfil my obligations. If I can do anything else to facilitate an orderly transfer of duties, please let me know as soon as possible.”
