Writing a “Sweden resignation letter.”

When writing a resignation letter in Sweden, these are some of the things that you need to keep in mind.

  • If you are employed for one year or less, you must give a one-month notice period. If you are employed for more than one year, you must give two months’ notice.
  • If you give the required notice period, you are not obligated to give any reasons for quitting;  however, it would be best to tell your employer why you are leaving your job.
  • The first step is to tell your employer about leaving the job and the final work date. Keep it short, as the essential part of the letter is the last date of your work.
  • Thank your employer for the position and the opportunities you have enjoyed during your work period.
  • Ensure you proofread your letter before sending it to your employer. You can send the letter to your family and friend to check for grammatical errors.

Please accept this letter as my resignation as a cashier with XYZ. My final day of employment will be June 30, 2022, because I will be starting college for summer classes. This job has been a fun learning experience for me, and I genuinely thank you for the opportunities I’ve had to grow. I’ve enjoyed getting to know my co-workers and the regular customers. I will miss everyone and hope to come back to visit when I’m home from school.

Over the next few weeks, I will do all I can to ensure my departure is smooth. I’m happy to help search for and train my replacement. Feel free to call me at 000-000-0000 if you have any questions or need further assistance.

Best,

Andrew Burns”

Sample 5: “Sweden resignation letters”

“Dear Mr O’Reilly,

It is with remorse that I write to you today with my formal resignation. My last day of work will be January 8th, 2017.

The short notice is somewhat personal; all I can say is that I am no longer in need of employment. I want you to know it has nothing to do with you or the company. I have enjoyed my four years at Amazon and have nothing but good things to say about management and my co-workers.

I hope you’ll accept this short notice of resignation, and please let me know if I can help find or train a replacement.

Best wishes,

[Signature]
