Resignation Letter Due to Unhealthy Work Environment (2023)

Updated: January 27, 2023

If you feel that your work environment is not healthy, you must move on to maintain your sanity and professional decorum.

But outwardly saying that the place where you work is unhealthy, may pose a problem when you need your leaving documents and dues.

Since you have to say exactly what it is that is bothering you, it is best to be a little subtle.

What to say in a Resignation Letter Due to an Unhealthy or Unethical Work Environment?

Without taking names, highlight what is bothering you about your work environment.

Even if it is a person because of whom you cannot work properly, be subtle in how you address this issue.

You don’t want it to seem as if you are writing a complaint instead of a resignation.

However, do chart out what is bothering you. And then politely beg your leave.

Remember that the resignation letter which you write under these circumstances may be considered so that some action is taken against the person who is bothering you.

Leave that door open. Here is a sample:

Mr. Jaden Smith
Director (Sales)
Macy Works
102 Trinity Circle
Martinez, CA 45021

Dear Mr. Smith:

I am writing to inform you of my decision to resign from the position of Sales Manager for Macy Works, on a two-week notice, effective February 9, 2023. This notice period is in accordance with the terms and conditions charted out in my employment letter.

As I have mentioned several times, both verbally and in writing, my work is being adversely affected by the unhealthy conditions prevalent in the office. Since I am supposed to be working with a team of people who are not very good at providing directions, I am afraid that this situation is making me come out wrongly as someone who is unable to work properly.

Not only is this situation hindering my work, but it is also making me nervous and unable to meet deadlines, which is a great cause of concern for me. Since I have made several attempts to rectify this situation over the last 3 years, and have been unable to resolve it through dialogue with the management, I believe that I should move on.

It would be a great kindness if you could process my leaving documents immediately so that this transition can take place without problems. On a completely different note, I am grateful for the opportunity to work here and anticipate a future liaison if circumstances change.
