Sample Resignation Letter for a Part-Time Job (+ Free Template) [2020]

part time job resignation letter

Resigning from a part-time job is similar to resigning from a full-time position. A manager, supervisor, or boss is going to replace job duties and responsibilities with another colleague or coworker (or potentially a new hire). And relieve the part-time worker of their duties after two weeks of a transition period.

Providing “proper notice” to the employer is important. This is usually a notice period of two weeks where the employee and employer can transfer all responsibilities. As well as ensure that incomplete projects or objectives have been moved forward for the company.

When resigning from a part-time position, it’s important to first speak with the manager and agree upon a few details. The first would be the end of the employment date or “final day”. The second would be the objectives the two colleagues would like to accomplish during the notice period. Once those have been agreed upon, the resigning employee should write a resignation letter or formal letter of resignation for the human resource department and current employer.

How to Quit a Part-Time Job

Here’s how to resign or “quit” from a part-time job:

If an employment contract is held for the part-time position, it may be necessary to refer to the details in the agreement regarding the resignation process. This may be a longer period of time required to transition out of the current position (longer than a “2-week notice”).

If unsure of how to handle the resignation process, it’s always best to refer to the employee handbook that was provided during training. There’s a “right way” and “wrong way” to resign. A short notice of resignation puts the employer in a difficult position. It’s always advised to offer a long transition period if possible.

On the final day of employment, the manager should offer to perform an exit interview. This provides the resigning employee with an opportunity to solicit feedback about the position.
