This letter is to inform you that I am resigning my position with the company effective immediately. Apparently, the forms I have been filing to the various government regulatory boards were all filed incorrectly. Despite my use of the company policies for filling out those forms, I am being directly blamed for the incident and was told I could be fired or resign. I choose to resign.
Prior to determining that I would resign, I looked up my remaining vacation and sick time and note that I have eight days that I should be compensated for in my final check. I also expect to have access to my retirement account, of which I am fully vested.
In my opinion, I am being made a scapegoat for the filing department that drafted those policies. I followed the manual word for word and I am being blamed because the instructions I was given are incorrect. Not only is this not fair to me, it is a problem that the company will have to deal with again if all of those policies are not changed.
Thank you for the opportunities you have given me and for my time with the company. If you need to discuss this with me, please call me at 555-242-6843 or email me at email@example.com.
