Emailing Resignation (okay or not?)

Posted

Has 9 years experience.

My agency emails literally everything (pt records, pt signed forms, etc) because we live in a very large city. I live about an hour to an hour and a half away from my agency and thats withOUT traffic.

So my question is: Would it be acceptable to email my supervisor my resignation letter? I was just offered a public health job yesterday and start in two weeks.

I would also send a hard copy by snail mail, return receipt requested. It also might come across as courteous to give her a call and just tell her you will be following up with official resignation.

Thanks so much! I'll email her tonight but also let her know that I'll be sending her an official letter. I just didn't want to go so far to simply turn in a letter.

If you are going to email you can request a read receipt for your email. The setting is in your email account just have a look. Personally I would deliver a copy in in hand but that is just me.

Thanks everyone! I emailed her an informal resignation letter stating that I would be leaving and I also went to the office and put an official letter in her mailbox (which I informed her of in the email).
