Shorter Notice Period Resignation Letter Example

If you are about to hand your notice in but want to leave earlier than your notice period on your contract of employment, then it is important to phrase the letter well.

For example, if you are supposed to be giving your employer one months notice but you are looking to leave after two weeks for example then you will need to make sure that you give a good reason for needing to do this and also prove to your employers that you will do a thorough handover to someone, your replacement and help them to make sure that you do not leave any gaps in you leaving their employment.

Please see the below example resignation letter which you can use as a guide.

Use this resignation letter if you want to leave your job with a shorter notice period. Make sure that you have amended this letter before using it for yourself.
