Two weeks notice

How should I do it? I am quitting because they are changing my works hours/shift to one I cannot work.

*My plan is to write a letter, just not sure how it should go. That's what I need help with.

  • Dear (Manager),

    This is to inform you that I am resigning my position as (title) at (company). My last day will be (date).

    I appreciate the opportunity I have had here at (company) over the last (length of time worked), and I feel I have learned a lot. I wish continued success to all of you.

    This is the letter of resignation I handed in myself last week. Short, to the point and doesn't burn any bridges so that you have no issues.

    If you want to give the boss a reason, you can do s. I take it you've already tried to get back to your desired schedule and have been turned down? This probably won't come as any surprise, if so.

  • Just like that. It doesn't have to be lengthy. "Due to the change in schedule, I am no longer able to continue working. In order to give you time to hire and train a replacement for my position, I would like to give two week's notice of my departure from the company. My last day will be _____"

  • I wrote a letter and physically gave my two weeks as well as the letter. in your case I would talk to my boss and ask them if we could move it back to something I could work

  • Hand over a written resignation to your employer/immediate supervisor or HR department (which one would depend on your job structure and what the policy is for your place of employment).

  • Thanks everyone.

    And there is no going back to my desired schedule, this was a departmental change so I'm sure I won't be the only one handing in my two weeks notice.
