Frequently Asked Questions (Two Weeks Resignation Letter)

Is a resignation letter the same as 2 weeks’ notice?

A resignation letter is a formal letter informing your discontinuation of employment to your supervisor. It is generally required in any organisation. A 2 weeks notice is a common courtesy and is sometimes mentioned in the employment contract.

Can I resign immediately?

In circumstances where your health or wellbeing is compromised, it is okay to resign immediately without giving due notice. However, this can be cumbersome for the company so try to be considerate to your employers.

What happens if you don’t give 2 weeks’ notice?

If you don’t give your employers sufficient notice, then it can lead to a lot of inconvenience on both ends. 

The company may have to bear a loss of money and other resources in finding a replacement on short notice. You may also end up burning bridges and losing valuable professional support.
