What is the appropriate way to resign while on medical leave? Is it fine to send an email first stating that one is resigning, mentioning a formal letter will be sent in the mail? Thanks.

A simple email is generally sufficient but I don't see the benefit of resigning during a medical leave. By resigning you may waive your legal entitlements so I recommend that you reconsider your plans and contact us at the number below to discuss your options and the course of action that is best suited to your situation.
