What to be Included in a Letter of Termination Due to Poor Performance of an Employee?
Termination of an employee done by a company will need to be done properly and needs to have a proper reason in why they are terminated. There are many factors why an employee can be terminated from his or her job. One of those reasons could because of their poor performance in the company. Usually, a letter of termination due to poor performance is issued by the HR Department (admin or manager) addressed to the employee that they are going to terminate. A proper termination letter needs to be issued or the company could face legal charges too.
A letter of termination due to poor performance needs to include a few things in it. If you are the person in charge of creating this type of letter, you have to make sure that it is created properly and correctly. Just like any other termination letter, it will have to include a letterhead of the company, letter’s number, letter title, details of the employee that will be terminated, the content of the letter (poor performance issue), the closing statement of the company, place, and date when the letter is issued, and the name and signature (HR Manager, General Manager, and the employee).
If the productivity of an employee is deemed no longer beneficial for a company especially, they could cause the company to lose profit or business, then it is necessary to do something about it. Usually, this type of letter is the last resort that a company could do to an employee. Most of the time, the employee will have received several warnings first (verbal and written) before they will be terminated from the company. One of the many reasons why an employee might not be productive anymore could be because of their age (it could be that they are not effective anymore as they are getting older).
