Dismissal Letter Template

Not all employees are potential as well as suitable at the same time. Some people just don’t suit your business. Even if they’re honest, they might not be skillful enough. At other times, you accidentally hire some professional, skilled but totally dishonest people. In both conditions, you have no choice but to say goodbye to such employees if you really are concerned about your business. Since businesses require everything professional, they also require a professional wrath from you.

The process of dismissal is tricky. With a bad ‘’goodbye’’, you can invite rivalry from your ex-employee who might know the business secrets, can get entangled in court matters or at the least can create a bad impression of yours. So when you plan to dismiss an employee make sure you remain polite, logical and professional.


Writing dismissal letters is a decent way to inform your employee that it is his time to move from your office somewhere else. These letters are not only to inform the employee about the termination of his job but also to explain to him why he is being splashed out of the boat so that he may not elongate the process of termination by asking for reasons of dismissal.

As mentioned earlier, not all employees are dismissed for the same reasons. While some are dismissed for violating rules or showing dishonest behavior, others may be dismissed for not being able to fulfill the business requirements. They are honest people but they lack required skills. For such employees, it is good to attach a character reference letter with dismissal letter so that they may easily get another job that may suit their skills.

You can find a sample of dismissal letter here. Since dismissal letters are to save your business, make sure you don’t sink it by unprofessionally dismissing your employees or business partners.
