“Dear Sir,

I am writing because I would like to submit my official letter of resignation. I have been working with this company for three years and I have been at different branches all over the world. However I can say that I have not been to a more disorganised branch than this one. My job requires that I travel from branch to branch and hand in my report but over the last six months the my low salary has become a big headache for me and my family.

Salary is something that is fixed each month and in the last six months my salary has been lower and lower due to the deductions without any reason and even my daily wages that I get for my labor supply have been reduced. I have sent various letters to complaint and have even talked to the my head in this company in person for discussions but unfortunately, nothing has been done.

Now finally I am resigning. This has cause me a lot of stress as I also have bills to pay and a family that rely on me to provide for them. I hope that you sort this out for your future employees and I wish you all the best in the future.

Kind regards,

Mr. __”
