Sample Layoff Notice Letter
Layoffs are a common way of downsizing in an attempt to cut organizational costs. These often happen during mergers and acquisitions, economic declines, or unforeseen events such as COVID-19. Managing a successful layoff is a huge challenge to employers for many reasons. It can cause negative publicity for employers, as well as to demoralize the remaining workforce.
If layoffs are necessary, we’ve helped make things a bit easier by providing a sample layoff letter.
You can use this letter as a basic template, but we recommend always seeking legal counsel during events like this to document all communications and make sure all your ducks are in a row.
