Vicesix I think she will have a hard time getting a reference from a job that she didn't give notice to. If you leave the same day I would have a hard time giving a good reference. Regardless of what happen she is leaving her employer high and dry. So you stick it out for the two weeks (maybe they ask you to leave before) or your don't ask for a reference. You will need to list them as an employer that is bad enough. Tread lightly.

A resignation letter should be very simple and straight to the point. Nothing in that letter that can come back to haunt you EVER! Just say this:
Effective Friday, _______________, I will be resigning as ___________________________. This resignation in no way reflects any negativity towards__________________________________.

I like Christinato's better than m-avi's No point in putting a lie down on paper. If HR asks in an exist interview feel free to say that the boss created a hostile working environment, but don't tell the boss directly and don't put it down on paper.
