Subject: Termination due to redundancy

Dear Employee Name,

This letter is in continuation of our discussions on [Insert date of redundancy discussion] with regards to your employment.

As advised to you earlier, it has regrettably been necessary to consider certain organizational / operational changes within [Sub Company] at [Insert branch office location].

As a result of these proposed changes we have made the following decision:

[Select one/two of the following]

  • To cease to carry on business in the area of [Insert details of trade or type of business].
  • To cease to carry on business at [Insert branch address].
  • To reduce the number of [Insert type of staff, e.g. sales staff] staff across the organisation as a whole due to the fact that the need for the same number of staff to carry out [Insert duties] has ceased or diminished/ is expected to cease or diminish. [Delete which does not apply]
  • To reduce the number of [Insert type of staff, e.g. sales staff] staff at [Insert branch address] due to the fact that the need for the same number of staff to carry out [Insert duties] has ceased or diminished/ is expected to cease or diminish. [Delete which does not apply]

Unfortunately, this means that your position will be made redundant. Whilst we have considered all available alternative options, it has not been possible to avoid instituting redundancies.

We have attempted to identify a suitable alternative vacancy to offer you, but unfortunately none is available. In the circumstances I confirm that your employment with the organization will terminate by reason of redundancy on [Insert date which must be the notice period under the employee’s contract].

We do/do not [Delete which does not apply] require you to work out your full notice period.

If you have any queries with regard to any of the terms of this letter or your redundancy, please do not hesitate to contact me.

In the meantime, please let us know if we are able to assist you in any way in finding future employment.

We wish you all the success in the future.

Your Sincerely,

For [Your Company Name]
