Sample resignation letter no notice
A sample resignation letter with no notice can be a difficult letter to write, especially when employers expect their employees to quit their job following a notice period.
For some employers and according to the contract, for instance a 3 month notice, six weeks, four week notice, 1 month/30 day notice or at least two weeks’ notice.
This can give you some time to finish any pending projects and allows your employer some time to find a replacement/trainee.
However, we understand how sometimes it is not possible to notify your manager in advance due to personal reasons that may make you leave on short or with an immediate effect notice (i.e. family emergency, urgent situation to attend, etc.).
Here are some tips on how to write your resign letter:
- Talk to your employer first, as soon as possible. Have a conversation with your boss about your intention to leave the company with no notice period considered.
- Clearly state the date and if you can stay at least a week, make sure to state it in the letter. However, if it is not possible also clearly state it at the beginning of your letter.
- You don’t have to go into details about why you are leaving, make it brief and simple.
- Express your gratitude for the opportunity given and apologize in case this resignation with no notice causes any issues for your company.
- If you have any questions about your last paycheck, benefits or any other concerns, make sure to include them.
- Provide your updated contact information in case they need to contact you.

HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGER
RE: NO NOTICE RESIGNATION LETTER
I am writing this letter to express my remorse for having to resign from this job without notice. For the season I have served in this firm, I have been well treated. There is no privilege that I have been denied. It is not a good thing to quit without notice. However, things have happened in my life that I did not plan for, and I practically have to leave immediately.
I have divorced my husband, and so I have to move to my home state immediately. Well, I cannot explain further about this, but know that it wasn’t my wish to end my job in this manner.
I promise to be open to any communication from the firm in case of any inquiries in my department. I would have wished to have a smooth transition, but then I am limited. The further I can get is to clarify anything to my team to at least help them bridge the gap.

“Dear Ms. Burle,
I am writing this letter to inform you that, unfortunately, I will no longer be returning to work, effective immediately. I would like to extend my sincere apology for the lack of advance notice. I have recently received a job offer which I believe would help me to get closer to my ultimate career goals, and it is a time-sensitive offer that I must accept immediately. As my new job will be located in the state of Virginia, I must get my moving plans together as soon as possible. I sincerely regret any inconvenience that this may cause to the Smith Communications team.
I have already notified the rest of the team of the situation. Mr. Jameson will be bringing me my belongings from my desk as well as taking over the responsibility for my current project. I trust that he will do an excellent job on the project. I will miss the team and the Smith Communications environment but look forward to what the next stage of my career may bring.
Please let me know if any clarification is needed in this matter. I can be contacted by phone at (555)-555-5555 or email at [email] Thank you for your consideration in this matter.
