Resignation Letter Example Without Notice Period

It’s always a difficult letter to write but when you are going to be giving no notice period too then the letter is even more difficult because it will instantly be confrontational towards your Manager or the person who you are handing your notice into.

Think carefully before deciding to give no notice as usually you are stipulated to a notice period as part of your contract of employment and you want things to end on a good note despite leaving.
You could have a valid reason for not being able to work your notice, such as a family illness or bereavement etc but if you are just wanting to start a new or better job quicker then please think carefully.

The below letter is an example of how you should write your resignation letter.
