(4 Posts)

I am turning in my letter of resignation tomorrow the 29th. Giving them two weeks. I have a couple of questions. 1) the terms 2 weeks, is that 2 5 business days or is it 7 days that include the weekend. 2) what time of day to hand in notice, morning or before leaving at the end of the day. 3) Do I stand there while he is reading it. I'd apprecaite any help I could get FAST

You don't have to be there when they read it. I would generally go in and say I'm sorry, I'm resigning, here is my official letter. I've done it in the morning, so I don't have to get antsy all day thinking about it.

2 weeks, is 2 weeks, in your life, it's 14 days, in business it's 10 working days. In the letter you'd normally say, please accept this letter of my notice of resignation, with 2 weeks notice, my last working day will be ........ (enter whatever day it is)

That way there is no confusion of when you are actually leaving.

They may want to talk about the whys etc... (unless it's patently obvious), in that case you'd stay there a bit and discuss, if not, then go back to desk and carry on per normal.
