Sample resignation letter acceptance

In this guide, we will discuss what a resignation letter acceptance is and look at the sample resignation letter acceptance.

Sample resignation letter acceptance

A sample resignation letter acceptance is written by an employer when an employee submits a letter of resignation. It is the way a company lets an employee know (formally) that they acknowledge the receipt of their resignation letter, their reason for leaving, and confirm their last day of employment in writing.

According to ‘Indeed’, “It also gives you the opportunity to express well wishes and communicate other information, such as expectations during their notice period or information about the company resignation policy.”

Let’s imagine then the following scenario, you have given your manager/supervisor your resignation letter, a standard resignation with a 30-day notice or 2-week notice, or an immediate resignation in short notice, because you want to study and pursue a higher education degree or because you had personal problems and need to quit your current position.

After they have accepted your resignation, they will give you a resignation letter acceptance acknowledging your decision to leave the company. In addition, it gives an employer the opportunity to recognize the value and contributions an employee has made to the company. It could also contain additional information such as “whether the employee will be allowed to continue working throughout the duration of the notice period or whether they will make the resignation effective on that day.”
