Sample resignation letter less than two weeks notice

A sample resignation letter with less than two weeks’ notice is useful when you are resigning on short notice, giving just one week notice or no notice at all by submitting an immediate resignation. Submitting a formal resignation, being professional and polite, will increase the probability of getting a good recommendation letter from your employer, no need to burn bridges!

If you have decided you want to quit your job, it is important to let your employer know you are leaving and when. Normally, your contract will indicate the notice period, but for most companies, a 2 week notice period will allow them to find a replacement. However, there are some circumstances that can make you quit without notice or on short notice with less than two weeks’ notice. For instance, a family emergency or a new employer that needs you to start right away

However, your employer will appreciate it if you notify them as soon as possible and it is recommended in person but if you can’t, make sure to call or send an email letting them know. Here are some key aspects to include:

  • Clearly and concisely state your intention to leave including details such as your current position.
  • State the date of your resignation or last day of employment, preferably during the first paragraph. You could also apologize if resigning under short notice is causing any type of inconvenience.
  • Keep it straight to the point and simple if you have decided to add a reason why you may be leaving. Just make sure you are not detailed or specific.
  • Briefly thank your employer for the opportunity and you can highlight some positive aspects of the job or new skills you learned during your time as an employee.

Dear Ms. Wozniak,

It is my regret to inform you that I must hand in my resignation as head of security at Coronado Center. My last day of work will be next Wednesday, the 29th of March.

Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, I am not able to fill out the regular two weeks as per the employee handbook. I have an urgent family matter to attend which I cannot go into more detail about.

I hope you understand and accept this letter as I do not wish to cause you or the department any aggravation. You have been very good to me and I have very much enjoyed working under your authority.

Although I will only be here for one more week, I would like to extend my services in guiding my replacement through his rounds and duties.

Best regards,
