It may be one of the last things you are thinking about after you have suffered a serious accident or injury, and are coping with all of the physical problems that comes with any type of injury. But if you are too ill to work, or find that you cannot bring yourself to return to the company which caused you injury, then you will have to let your employer know that you will not be returning to work.
Once you have made the decision to leave your job, you need to let your employer know sooner rather than later, out of respect for the company and so that you can start to move on as well.
- Make a case after your accident. If your employer was at fault for your accident, it will be useful if you put together a case against your employer even if you don’t plan to sue. This will help you to leave your contract early and without punishment. Make sure that you include all evidence of your employer’s wrongdoing.
- Speak to your employer. Explain why your injury means that you won’t be able to return to work, and your reasons for wanting to leave. If you take this directly into a meeting with your employer then you will be able to have this discussion face to face, without having to worry about any delay.
- Speak to your doctor. Your doctor may be able to help you to leave your job if the injury you have sustained is serious and will take a long time to recover from. If you simply are not medically able to work for a long time, then you employer has no choice but to accept your resignation.
- Write everything down. Although you need to speak to your employer face to face, it will also be useful for you to be able to present them with something in writing which states your reasons for leaving.
