When an employee wants to resign from a job due to some unresolved grievance at the workplace, this type of letter is usually submitted. Of course one would not expect to maintain cordial relations after leaving as this kind of resignation will not be an amicable one.

CEO Credenza Cosmetics
Subject: resignation letter
Dear Mr. Winslow,
Please be informed that I am resigning from the post of Deputy Manager of Finance of Credenza Cosmetics with effect from 07-10-2013, 30 days from today. Please consider this as the 30-day notice of resignation as is mandatory per my contract.
You may be aware that in spite of my repeated applications for promotion to the post of Manager, I was not considered, and I was passed over twice, and people with much less experience were promoted instead. This is highly frustrating, and I feel cheated. With over six years of experience, I am more than qualified for the post. I am therefore left with no option but to tender my resignation.
I am sure you appreciate my stand and will relieve me of my responsibilities on 07-10-2013, my last working day at Credenza Cosmetics. I trust that my dues will be paid before that day.

Subject: resignation letter
Dear Ms. Huckins
I am writing to tender in my resignation as a Sales Executive in MayorMiles Company.
I want to bring your attention to the poor work conditions at the Sales Department, which I have informed not only the Department Head but your kind self also. However, no affirmative action was taken to rectify the situation after six months.
Therefore, I have decided to submit this letter of resignation, as the conditions are not conducive to my productivity.
I trust that the company will clear any outstanding dues to me quickly before my last day at work here, which is the end of this month.
