Sample Two Week Notice Letter

If you are not working under a contract that states you must give a two week notice then writing a two week notification letter is not mandatory under "at will" employment. You may just walk out the door if you so desire. Due to the fact that "at will" employment under common law where no contract is involved is defined as employment that is presumed to be voluntary and indefinite for both employees as well as employers.

About Writing Two Week Notice Letters

  • Though not required common courtesy and maintaining a good reputation suggest writing a two week notice. Check your company's policy manual to be certain what is called for.
  • If you do not give a two week notice and it is required you may be forfeiting your accrued vacation time.
  • If you are leaving at a critical time for your company you may consider giving a four week notice.
  • Keep the two week notice letter short and to the point.
  • State explicitly that it is time to move on. However, emphasize the positive and speak briefly about how you have benefited from working with the company.
  • Always offer to help with the transition.
  • Leave on good terms and do not be negative.
