Business Letter

Two-week notice letter templates

You will find here free templates for two-week notice letters to give to your employers when leaving your job.

Why give a two-week notice with a letter?

There are several reasons:

  1. When leaving a job position, it is common courtesy to leave your manager a minimum of 2 weeks notice. This leaves your manager the opportunity to plan the transition while you are still holding your job, and prepare for the next hire.
  2. Most important, it is a way to formally notify your manager and HR team about your decision to leave. It will be an official document you can keep to demonstrate that you have taken the necessary steps to give your company and team early notice. End of employment notice to manager and your company helps avoid any confusion and bring more clarity, in a potentially sensitive and critical situation where you will transition between jobs.
