Employment Resignation Letter


Overview
This Employment Resignation Letter is used by someone who is working for a firm or another individual to give written notice to the employer that the employee is choosing to end the employment relationship.
A written notice, in advance, is not only professional, but courteous to your employer as well, and will reflect more positively during the recommendation phase of your relationship.
It can give you the opportunity to explain your reasons for leaving and perhaps salvage the relationship with your current employer.  If at all possible, do not cite reasons that are hostile or inciting. 
A written resignation letter is very important.  For example, the employer may be obligated to notify the employee of the right to continued health insurance benefits.  The notice of these benefits must be sent within a certain time frame or the notice is deemed ineffective.
Make certain that if there was an agreed upon time period for notice, that this letter meets that requirement.
