Immediate Resignation Letter for Personal Reasons (Sample for 2023)

Updated on: December 26, 2022

Writing a resignation letter is one of the most cumbersome tasks but a necessary part of professional life.

You should provide your employer with adequate notice as it is only ethical means to let them find and train someone else in your place before you leave.

However, there are times when an employee needs to go immediately and cannot provide a notice period. In this case, they will need to write an immediate resignation letter specifying the reason for leaving.

In this scenario, many people write that they are resigning due to a “personal reason” which is not enough. The employer might think that you are hiding something and may not be too happy with the employment.

It is strongly recommended to give a hint of what the personal reason is even if you do not want to tell much detail.

Have a look at the following sample resignation letter due to personal reasons.

Ms. Nina Hopkins
Manager Human Resources
Core Inc.

Manhattan, KS 20154

Dear Ms. Hopkins:

It is with great regret and a heavy heart that I am informing you about my decision to resign from my position as Secretary for Core Inc on an immediate basis. My husband was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS), a debilitating auto-immune disease that has no defined cure as yet, and I need to make arrangements to take him to Toronto for an experimental procedure that may cause the quality of his life somewhat better.

The experimental program that I have applied to demands that I start his treatment on Monday next week which is less than seven days away and I need to do several things before we can fly to Canada. I have worked for wonderful 6  years at Core Inc., and it is not easy for me to leave suddenly – but unfortunately, I do not have another choice.

I understand that the usual resignation procedure requires that I provide a two weeks notice or forfeit my salary; I am willing to do the latter. Thank you very much for all the skills that you have taught me over these years, and I hope to rejoin this position (if available) when I will return in December 2023. I will hand over my work to Mr. Robert Redford today and can be reached at (000) 987-4141.
