Dear Mrs. Smith

Please accept this letter as a notification that I wish to resign from my position as Administrative Assistant within ABC Solutions, effective from the date above.

It is reluctantly that I leave the position I have taken on for the past eight years, but due to continuing health problems, I find it is no longer possible to continue my duties in the company.

I believe I am required to give you four weeks’ notice of my intentions; therefore my due date will be (insert date). As I am currently on sick leave, I understand that I am ineligible to take the vacation I have accrued. Please advise me if this will be paid to me and, if so, when.
