    I would just tender resignation giving however many weeks notice. If they ask just be honest. But I don't think it's necessary to add fluff to a resignation.

    I would definitely say that you had the expectation of X hours and that they have been reduced and last week you only got Y. As you have a family to support you need something more reliable.

    Congrats on the new job!

    Thanks everyone!

    I wrote and sent one her way. I know I'll be nervous to read her reply... lol. I'm so worried she'll be offended... but I guess, if somewhere is offering me more hours and is closer to home, as a mother herself I hope she understands.

    I didn't mention my hours being cut back as she okays that happening, so I'm sure she can figure out that my hours being severely cut back would have contributed... but I did mention that the other place has offered full-time hours, and is closer to home and obviously, that is better for my family, blah blah.

    I thanked her for employing me in the first place, explained that I did love my job (because seriously, I do love it... I just hate that my hours are being cut back severely, and dislike the other girl... who is leaving soon anyway, but that doesn't really mean I'll get more hours...)... etc etc.

    Hopefully she takes it well.

    I gave a bit over a week's notice. That's okay right? I'm a casual and the info about how much I get for award wage, etc etc... that says 1 week notice as a casual is fine.

    One week or 38 hours is fine.
