Dear Mr/Mrs/Ms/Miss [Surname],

I am writing to inform you that I am resigning from my position of [insert the name of your post within the organisation] with immediate effect.  Please accept this as my formal letter of resignation and a termination of our contract. I feel that I am left with no choice but to resign in light of my recent experiences regarding …[Insert the title of one or more of the following scenarios] 

a.         a fundamental breach of contract; this can be a breach of an express term or breach of an implied term (e.g. your employer changed your job significantly or subjected you to undue/disproportionate/harsh treatment. This can also entail not carrying out grievance procedures in line with your contract and/or discriminating against you because of your age/race/gender/disability/caste/religion/belief/gender reassignment/marriage/civil partnership/pregnancy/maternity/gender orientation);

b.         anticipated breach of contract; this is when your employer has informed you of ‘an action’ in definite terms (e.g. you will be subjected to a grievance procedure that is not part of your contract or agreed working condition effective from a certain date);

c.         breach of trust and confidence (e.g. your employer has acted in a manner that damages your reputation and/or career prospects);

d.         last straw doctrine (e.g. your employer has subjected you to abusive treatment and/or acted in breach of contract on numerous occasions in the past, thus resulting in your employer acting in breach of contract and although you waived your employer’s breach in the past, you are no longer willing to do so.  The final act of your employer need not be significant but should have some connection with the past treatment/breach of contract by your employer).

I consider this to be a fundamental/unreasonable breach of the contract on your part. I appreciate the time and energy which you have invested in training me and  I believe that the skills I have gained will serve me well in the future.  I will do my very best to ensure a smooth transition upon my departure and make sure that all the details/information is left available to the person who takes up my position following my departure.

I would be grateful if you could acknowledge this letter at the earliest available opportunity.
