Resignation withdrawal letters do exist within a workplace environment. They are formal, written documents which, in effect, ask an employer to ignore an employee's previous request to resign. If the resignation withdrawal request is accepted, then the employee will be able to continue working for their establishment as if nothing has happened.

  • Why write a resignation withdrawal letter?

Everyone will have a reason for resigning from their job. However, after a resignation letter has been handed in, your circumstances can alter, or you might simply change your mind. If you have not yet finished working your notice period (the period of time between handing in your resignation, and officially leaving work), you may be able to withdraw your resignation.

People have different experiences when it comes to withdrawing a resignation - for some, the process may be simple and easy, but for others, the process can be complicated, difficult, and some people may not be able to secure their job again. However, writing a resignation withdrawal letter is the first port of call for anyone wishing to continue their work, despite handing in a resignation.

  • How to write a resignation withdrawal letter

There are a number of things you must bear in mind whilst writing a resignation withdrawal letter. Firstly, you must try to be apologetic - changing your mind and deciding not to resign from your job can be a complicated and difficult process for your employer to deal with. As a result, you should include a phrase such as "I apologize for any inconvenience caused by this request".

Also, you should remember to be polite. Technically, you're almost out of a job, so writing a demanding or rude resignation withdrawal letter is not the type of action you should be taking. You could start your letter with a phrase such as "I am writing this letter in order to request the withdrawal of my earlier resignation".
