Sub: Resignation letter due to Delay in Salary

Dear (Sir),

I had previously written you an email regarding the delay in my salary. It has been five months (more/less) now since I have been paid with so many delays. I was very upset because of this and wanted to take this up with you before. (Describe in your own words). But it seems like you never took any notice of this.

We all work for money and we depend on this income. By the start of every month, common people have bills to pay and meet all their needs. (Explain actual cause and situation). I am working only one job at a time, which means I am completely depending on this money. (Explain all about the situation). Not getting my salary on time creates a lot of financial constraint on me. I had requested you before as well to pay me my salary on time. (Briefly describe your requirements).

Subject: Discontinue working because of delayed salary

Respected Sir,

I have written you a number of letters previously telling you about the delayed salary and the inconvenience that it is causing for me. It has been five months since I joined the company and since then, I have never paid on time. I am tired of delayed payment. It has become very hard for me to make ends meet especially when I don’t get paid on time. I have told you about this many times but you don’t seem to care about it.

Every one of us works for money and we all depend on it to some extent. People have to pay utility bills at the start of every month. I am also required to pay my bills and I am completely dependent on the salary I receive from this job as I don’t have any other source of income.

Not getting a salary on time has brought so many financial crises for me. Therefore, I have decided to resign from my job. I would like to request you to clear my pending salary as soon as possible so that I can leave on good terms. As per my employment contract, I am not required to give any notice during my probation period. However, I am ready to assist you in the transition.

In case you have any query regarding this letter, you can reach me via my cell number or email address.

Dear Ms. Lee:

I am writing to notify you that I have accepted a position with an organization that is offering me better compensation and benefits than this company. My last day of work will be October 7, 2021.

Although I have greatly valued the opportunity to work with you, unfortunately, this is an opportunity I cannot turn down. I would be doing myself and my family a disservice to turn down an increased salary and a complete benefits package that includes paid vacation and sick time, and dental and vision insurance.

I do hope you understand my situation to take on this new position. Please accept my sincere thanks for all that you have done for me during my time working for you. I would be more than happy to assist in the transition period and welcome any questions you may have as you look for a replacement.

Thanks again for your understanding.
