Dear Mr. Bill,

It is with sadness that I write this letter to inform you of my decision to resign my position as Office Administrator at the Cleveland Branch of Marvel Consultants effective two weeks from today. I’ve been in my position for six years and have enjoyed the job, the people I work with, and the consultants I support. If you check my file, you’ll see that for the first five years of my employment, I received excellent performance reviews.

It is the last year that has been difficult Ð the last year with a new Branch Manager. Unfortunately, the new manager has taken the polarizing, partisan, political positions so commonly fought about in the public forum and not only invited them into the office, but has stirred up disagreements and been insulting to employees who disagree with his position.

During this difficult time, and with another national election coming up, one would think the wise path would be to eliminate politics from the office. Instead, I have felt persecuted because of my political beliefs and challenged and forced to defend them.

As I said, I have enjoyed my job at Marvel Consultants. I’ve learned many things in my time here, including what makes a hostile work environment. Just the sense of relief I feel in writing this letter confirms that my resignation is the right move. Thank you for the mostly positive experience.

“ Dear Mr. Coursey,

I am sending this letter to inform you of my immediate resignation from my position as project manager at ABC Company. Unfortunately, this resignation is due to the hostile work environment I have been experiencing since the recent promotion I received. The rest of the employees have behaved increasingly hostile to me since I was promoted over them and I can no longer keep coming into the office under these conditions. I will not be coming back into work so please accept this letter as my official notice of resignation from ABC Company.

I apologize for any inconvenience that my resignation may cause to ABC Company. It is my hope that by bringing this situation to your attention, some type of action can be taken to prevent this from happening to the next person who steps into my position. If you would like to discuss this with me further, please contact me at (555)-555-5555 or [email]

Although I am very upset at the situation that has necessitated my resignation, I am glad for the business experience I have earned by working at ABC Company up until now and know that it will serve me well in my next job. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation in this matter.

Yours sincerely,

Sophie Vanderbilt

Resignation letter due to hostile work environment: Sample 4

“ Dear XXXX,

I wrote this letter with a lot of emotion. I Want to retire from your company. Even though I bought it, I don’t want the unhealthy conditions to make me resign from the job. Even I put this point in front of my seniors many times but I didn’t get enough response from them. My work quality is affected as I was working with a group of people who were not behaving well and maturely. Xxxxxxxx This date is going to be my last working day in the company. I made my decision strongly.

That not only decreases my quality of work but makes me nervous and stressed. Indirectly into depression. So I want to resign from the best Institute. I made my point and tried to resolve the issues for many years but all those turned into ashes. I am glad to get experience from such a highly reputed company. It would be very great if you make my resignation as fast as possible. And made my point perfectly and don’t think I am going to change my brain at any moment. 

I want to move on from this situation. Thank you for taking the time to read my resignation letter. 

Thank you,



Project manager,

Resignation letter due to hostile work environment: Sample 6

“Dear sir,

I hereby write this letter to inform you about my resignation. I am resigning because of the environment that was created. It is very hard in writing a letter. Most importantly resigning because of the hostile environment is very hard to digest. My work from the last few weeks has decreased in quality. I cannot concentrate on my work due to the type of verbal misuse they did. Providing a calm and healthy environment is required in an organization. 

The hostile behavior increased a lot after my promotion. That made me feel bad and respectively made me to depressed. I ask you to accept this decision. I feel bad for the inconvenience followed by my resignation. I am unfortunate and cannot stay in that type of situation that made me resign. Although it’s a tough decision, it’s very hard for a person who loves his job to leave it for the sake of one person or because of his ill character. 

Yours sincerely

Showing your bad side is never a good idea that doesn’t matter if you are leaving the company is not. You don’t know what’s next so write your letter politely and most importantly every important point must be written perfectly. So you just need to be polite. It will be a better choice if you are lined up with another job. It’s better not to stay in a hostile environment. That is going to affect you and your home life a lot. 

After receiving your letter, if your boss wants another talk with you, make sure you have a talk with him and explain the situation perfectly and completely. Ask him to give his opinion on the issue and also make sure you make a contract with your boss about this issue and don’t take your step forward until he solves the issue. 

Hope you solve this issue and have a happy life.    “
