Dear Mr. / Mrs.


This is to inform you that you have been officially dismissed from (Organization Name) __________________. This order takes immediate effect and I request you to abide it.

As per our contract, if you are found to be breaking our rules more than 3 times, we have the right to dismiss you. The decision of your dismissal has been taken by the managment according to this contract clause.

As you are well aware, we have been receiving many complaints about your misbehavior and disrespect towards your seniors and customers. We have been kind enough to give you two warnings prior to this but sadly found no change in you. Hence, we are left with no option but to terminate your employment.


I request you to kindly get in touch with me immediately and complete all the leaving formalities because we have already found a replacement for your position and she is taking up her duties from tomorrow.


Consider this as the official dismissal letter from the establishment and return all the job related articles like uniform, id-card, food coupon etc that you have.


Yours Faithfully,

Dear Mr. / Ms.


I am writing you this letter as your official dismissal from our company. As you will find in your work contract, and by law, after verbal and two previous written warnings, I am well within my rights to terminate your employment.


I wish you to come to my office to sign the necessary paperwork as soon as possible, I already have filled your position with a very willing young person, one whom I know will treat her superiors with more respect than you.


So, please take this as your official dismissal from the company. I expect you to return your uniform to me, in full, and to report as soon as is possible, after your leaving, may I make it clear that you will not be welcome on the premises, not even as a paying customer.


Yours Faithfully,
