This question already has an answer here:
I am the only employee at a new company that is ran by a married couple. The environment is incredibly abusive and I have decided to leave at this time because I have just started on a brand new project that will take years to develop. I am the only person on this project, and I think it is best I quit now before I waste too much time on it (and the company's money). I have two questions:
1) My bosses are out of town until next week, and there is obviously no HR department to give notice to. Is it better to let them know of my resignation as soon as possible by email or should I wait until they return to do it in person?
2) In this situation I don't feel that it makes much sense to give two weeks notice as there is no one for me to train or hand my project off to, and I know they will not be hiring a replacement for a long time. In addition, my health is really suffering from being in this environment and I would like to get out as soon as possible. Should I still offer two weeks notice?
