Print a copy of the Resignation Letter.
Sign and date the Letter.
The Resignation Letter is a formal notice which must be served properly.
Check the contract of employment for any special rules about serving notices and make sure they are followed.
The safest way to serve notice is to deliver in person or failing this, to send by courier, post or email.
In person: hand the Letter to the employer personally.
Post: if you are serving notice by post then it is recommended that you use recorded delivery and that you keep a copy of the proof of posting and delivery.
Email: check that the employment contract allows you to send notices by email and whether it requires you to request a ‘read receipt’ as proof of service.
However you deliver the Letter, we recommend you tell the employer in person before delivering the Letter that you are resigning. If this is not practical, then you must make sure that the employer has received and read the Letter.
A copy of the Resignation Letter will be stored automatically in your Rocket Lawyer account ‘Dashboard’.
If you post or hand deliver the Resignation Letter, keep a copy of the signed Letter that was sent and anything else included.
If you email the Resignation Letter then keep a copy of the email that was sent and any attachments together with any ‘read receipts’.
