Leaving your job? It’s important to provide a written letter of resignation for several reasons.
While your company may not have an office “written intent to resign” policy, it is just more professional and courteous to provide a formal letter of resignation.
A written document allows you to extend your thanks for the opportunities your employer has provided, and to put your reason for leaving on record.
Most importantly, however, it creates a paper trail that shows you’ve given notice on a certain date, which can help prevent legal hiccups if there are issues processing your final paycheck or calculating your last day of benefits.
Here is an example of an (Accountant Resignation) Resignation Letter:
