We all want to be happy at work – after all, we spend a large part of our lives there! However, for some people, their health suffers when they are at work when it makes them unhappy, and they feel that they have no choice but to resign.
Here are just a few reasons that someone may feel that they have to resign from their job…
If you are being forced to work in conditions that are not safe, or not suitable for the requirements of the job
If you are being bullied at work – this can be verbal bullying, physical bullying or cyber bullying or even a combination
Not being paid for the work that you have done as agreed in your contract
These are just a few reasons, but there are many more. Before you hand in your notice, the first thing to do is to speak to your manager, or to your HR representative, or if you have one, your trade union representative. This may help to resolve the issue.
When this does not work and your only option is to resign, then you may be able to make a constructive dismissal claim. Ensure that you state in your resignation letter the reasons for your resignation.
