Resignation Checklist

Writing a Resignation Letter

Your resignation letter should be brief, simple and focussed on the subject. You should also be respectful and positive.

Submit your Resignation

As you can imagine this job is not as easy as we think. You are leaving your co-workers, friends and work place. Here is some tips for handing your resignation letter.

Your last day at work

You will talk to your manager about your last day at work. Check your contract documents for details of the minimum notice period you are required to give.  If you don't have a contract then 2 weeks notice is typical however your employer might want you to leave immediately or negotiate with you to stay longer than 2 weeks.

Final pay

Its important to know when your last paycheck will be so that you can make proper plans.

Employee benefits

Take a look at employee benefits that you might be eligible for when resigning from you job, for example you may be owed some holiday time which could be received in your final paycheck.


Unless you are retired you will probably need references and recommendation letters from your employer, so it is worth checking that they are happy to provide this for you before writing their name on your CV.

Funny Resignation Letter

Do you still want to see and example of funny resignation letter example?

QuoteDear my ex boss:

I'm thrilled to inform you that I'm resigning.

I have been waiting for what seems like forever to inform you that I’m resigning. I’ve hated worked for the company since the day I was hired. I don’t like the work, I don’t like my fellow employees, and I don’t like you.

I am tendering my resignation effective immediately and I’m heading for the open road. I bought a Harley and a leather jacket and my girlfriend, Denise, is coming along. It was a little tough to find a jacket to fit her, but we managed.

I know you would like me to help you with a transition, but I won’t. Have fun figuring out the files on my computer. I can’t even figure them out most of the time.

Oh, speaking of computers, you’ll need to figure out the passwords to all our online resources. I forgot to keep a list of them, so have fun with that.

I’m sure you’d like to have a going away party for me. However, I’m not interested in the stale cookies and nasty punch that constitutes saying goodbye at this company.

Don’t worry about writing me a reference, even though I’m sure you’d be glad to recommend my work. I don’t need or want one. I don’t need references where I’m heading. So, consider our bridges burnt.

Hope not to see you again ever in my life!

Give two weeks notice

It's very common to give two weeks notice as standart when quitting your job. Although senior managers may need to provide a minimum of three months notice.  Details should be in your contract or union representative can tell how many weeks you should give and you must follow what is written in your contract to ensure you receive a reference in the future, and avoid possible unwanted charges etc.  If you don't have a contract a general rule of thumb is that if you are paid weekly, you just need to give two weeks notice, if you're paid monthly then you should give one month notice.

Your boss might want to negotiate with you to stay on longer than your minimum notice period but you don't have to do it.  You are only obliged to stay on for the minimum contracted period.

You boss is also obliged to pay you for your notice period, less any holiday or benefits that you owe to the company. If you don't have a contract, or you both agree to it, your employment could be terminated immediately.  Employers could also decide that you should be removed from the workplace immediately, particularly if you have access to 'sensitive' information which they could be concerned you may want to take with you, although they are still obliged to pay you for your notice period.

If you want to learn more about this try these: two week notice, giving notice, 2 week notice.
