Due to Illness Resignation Letter Example
Mr. A. Employee
1, My House
Mrs. A. Manager
Resignation from the position of XXXX
I would like you to accept this letter of resignation from my role of XXXX.
As you are aware, I have had a period of illness over recent months and unfortunately I am now aware that this illness is not going to improve. I feel that it is only fair on both parties that I resign from my position of XXX so that you can get someone else to do this role on a more consistent basis and to give me the time that I need to recover.
I understand that my terms and conditions are for one months notice but under the circumstances I would appreciate it if I was able to leave earlier than this time due to my doctor’s advice and being able to recuperate.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity that you have done, I have learnt a great deal from my time with COMPANY NAME. I am sorry that it has come to this situation.
Thank you again for everything including your patience over the last few months. I would like to wish you all the best for the future.
