I’ve finally decided to take the plunge. I’m going to give notice at work. But it’s not going to the suprise 2 week notice. I have 1 month left before there is a natural transition at my work. I tried this last week to request some changes in order for me to return for one more year. They were declined, but I’m being encouraged to stick around for some discussions about it. I’m certain they will try to convince me to agree to terms I am not comfortable with. Either way, I have very clear lines in the sand. At this point, I’ve offered 3 solutions, and I’m down to 1. They asked to give me time for them to brainstorm and they will reach out next week. But over the past few days I’ve gotten several email messages from different managers saying they did not know, how I didn’t loop them in, forwarding my previous emails (In which I feel absolutely fine). I don’t believe there is anything revealing, I was honest and direct. They are gaslighters. Despite what I KNOW is true, they will try to convince me it’s not. Anyway, it’s grueling. I’ve done this for too long. And I’m ready to move on.
So, I need to write my notice. I’m giving 1 month notice. Any advice about what to say and how to handle this timeline. Like I said, they asked me to wait for them to brainstorm. Then that night I got several emails. Like all night long. And they were just saying how they don’t agree. So, basically I just want to say okay, and here’s my notice. But I’m trying to not be confrontational. I am at my limit with them.
Thanks for any help.

my employment lawyer said not to bother with fluff. I would strongly recommmend having a new position lined up!
This letter serves as written notification of my resignation from ________. My last day will be ________.

I agree with this.
Every job I’ve quit or every resignation letter I’ve received as a supervisor has basically been 2 sentences. Maybe three if we we have someone really trying to leave in our good graces because They want to come back in the future (for example one wanted to come back once her kid was in school, another was moving temporarily to care for a parent and since there was no specified length of time it couldn’t be done as leave). Basically “I’m resigning… My last day will be…”
You’re overcomplicating this OP. Two sentences. Done. Email it or deliver the letter personally. Walk away. If they try to talk about it just say “Thank you but I’ve made up my mind.” If you’re feeling generous you can add in a “Let me know if you need my assistance bringing my replacement up to speed.”

agreed!! Now if I was leaving a job temporarily with intent to come back, there would be a meeting with the supervisor to explain the situation and the letter would be a formality to have on file (and it would still be short and simple). OP isn’t necessarily expecting to leave with intent to come back…. I would also give the bear minimum of notice. If your contract says a month, do a month, but in this situation if your contract says 2 weeks, I’d give 2 weeks.!

Agree on the simple resignation letter, but there may be a reason to give a month: Where I live, the employer must respect the notice period given. If you give 1 month notice, they are required to either pay you out 1 month or allow you to complete the month of service.
