Sample Resignation Letter 2 Weeks Notice

Ok, so you want to leave the present company for a bunch of reasons. You can, as long as you do it in a professional and positive manner. Don’t forget that it is a small world, what you say and do might spread and affect your reputation. A resignation letter is a tool that tells the company/employer that you no longer wish to be a part of the organization and the reasons why you took that decision. Writing these letters can be quite intimidating but your job is to make the affair seem as pleasant as possible. A few guidelines can help you frame the right kind of letter that takes you in the forward direction. Most companies have a one month notice period which means that you need to start jotting down the important pointers from at least two months before you leave. If the company policy says 1 month and you serve the period, there is no problem. But, what happens if the company has a 3-month or 1-month notice period and you can serve only 2 weeks due to circumstances? This is a sticky situation and you must tread carefully. Usually, the employer has the legal right to deny you termination or fire you on terms of non-compliance and even cut your pay on these accounts. This affects your chances with this firm in future along with your references and your current state of mind. Read this article on how to carefully draft a sample resignation letter with a 2 week notice.

Dear Ms. / Mr. (Last Name)

There is no doubt that having worked with (name of company) for 10 years has provided me with immense opportunity and growth. But unhappy as it makes me, this letter is a formal notification for my resignation from the post of (name of post) owing to my husband’s immediate transfer abroad. I understand that the company’s policy has a 3 month notice period but due to the urgency of the matter, I’d appreciate if you could release me within a period of 2 weeks.

I would be very grateful for the same and it would be my honor if I can be of any assistance during this time.

Please accept my plea. Looking forward to hearing about the end date of my employment.
 
Thanking You,
Sincerely,
Your Signature
