How to write an employee termination letter due to a recession?

Writing a termination letter might be a tricky job since you do not want your employees to feel bad or cheated upon in any regard. Writing a termination letter yet assuring them of their capabilities is not an easy job. We recommend you to not fire the employee directly. Instead, first, a warning employee letter must be sent, in this way, a worker may behave in a good manner. But still, if nothing happens and the only way to get rid of the misconduct is by firing the employee then a proper official meeting must be conducted before sending a termination letter. 

While writing an employee termination letter, the most important two points which you consider is your compliance and tone of writing. Even if the employee did damage to your organization, you must write in such a way that the worker does not feel demotivated or hurt at all. Always try to end your relationship with your worker on good terms.
