An employee termination letter states the cause of and confirms the termination of a relationship between an employer and an employee. This letter is generally given to an employee who is being terminated following a termination meeting or it is mailed to him.
An employee termination letter contains the signature of the employee’s manager and is often printed on company stationary. The employee termination letter provides a summary of what is said in a termination meeting involving the employee, his manager or supervisor, and a human resources representative. The letter may also include information such as when and how an employee can obtain his final pay check.
