Resignation Letter due to Unsatisfactory Work Circumstances

Updated on: February 2, 2023

Unsatisfactory circumstances at work can be great downers. And if they are so bad that you have to resign, you may have a problem.

Writing a resignation letter is no fun. Work circumstances may be terrible but if you love your job, it is difficult to write a resignation letter. However, if you want to leave your job, you have to write a resignation letter.

Detailing why you’re leaving is important. As important is to highlight the specific reasons you need to leave – in this case, unsatisfactory work culture or circumstances.

Specifically, your resignation letter should pinpoint what made you take this decision. This will help the person reading your letter determine how grave the issue is, and then perhaps he or she can make sure that it does not happen again.

Resignation Letter due to Unsatisfactory Work Circumstances

February 2, 2023

Mr. Herald Ryder
Marketing Director
Bailey’s Inc.
35 Peak Road
New Orleans, LA 73648

Dear Mr. Ryder:

It is with a very heavy heart that I am writing this letter to resign from my position as a Supply Chain Manager at Bailey’s Inc. I have worked here for half my professional life, and it is a sad day for me. However, circumstances are such that I do not have a choice. Please consider this a one-month notice of my intent to leave. That is to say, May 27 will be my last working day.

I have always considered this organization as my own, and have worked here with great diligence. However, some circumstances have prevailed that I see are not being managed properly, and are affecting employees adversely.

Even though I have tried hard to change them first, and then eventually learn to work with them, I am not comfortable working in an environment that is unsafe. I have specifically asked for safety measures to be put into place at the warehouse, where 6 accidents have taken place in the last 3 months. My requests have fallen on deaf ears.

I am afraid that I cannot work in unsafe conditions, as I do not want to be responsible for a staff member’s injury – or something worse. I have carefully thought this out, and have made my decision.

It would be a great kindness to ensure that my leaving documents and dues are processed on time. I will train anyone you deem appropriate to replace me. And I wish the company all the best in future endeavors.
