Basically my manager is going to be out for the next few days so I won't be able to do it face to face, and he's just sent us all an email explaining that things are going to be "shaken up" in the restaurant I work in, and make a good opener for dropping the hint that I have to quit work soon.
I'm taking up an unpaid internship for the remainder of the summer before starting my masters in September, and I technically need to be "unemployed" for the purposes of applying for a career development loan,
I do feel like it should be something that's done face to face, but given the circumstances is it ok to resign via email?
Just check it is better for you to resign than to be let go. If you are likely to get a good reference, or can negotiate a good reference, or if there is any chance of redundancy pay (unlikely, but possible) then it is best for you to be let go in a 'restructuring'. Only resign if you are going to be fired for misconduct/poor work etc ie without a reference
