This letter can be used to resign from a position of employment. The document provides a simple template that enables a person to provide formal notice of their resignation and to clarify when their employment is at an end.


How to use this document

Once the document has been prepared, it must be delivered to the employer (usually by mail or by hand delivery). Depending on the nature of the business it may be appropriate for the letter to be delivered to a manager, HR officer, supervisor or business owner.

Any notice period that an employee is required to provide is unlikely to commence until the employer receives the letter.


Applicable Law

An employment arrangement in Australia may be affected by the Commonwealth Fair Work Act as well as state legislation, a registered agreement, an award, the common law as well as the employment contract itself. The employment contract may set out minimum notice periods.

General principles of contract law, as provided by the common law, may also apply.

How to modify the template
