Dear Mr. Bicknell,

I regret to inform you that due to the economic problems, we are being forced to down size the
company. We will no longer be able to support your job. Unfortunately this means that we must
dismiss you from the company.

The company has tried to take alternative approaches. We haven¶t given raises, kept a tight
budget, and made sure not to order excess products. However unfortunately that hasn¶t been
enough. We realize the affect that this will have on you and your family.

We appreciate all of your hard work and commitment to the company. We enjoyed watching you
learn and grow with us and we have no doubt that you will excel wherever you choose to work
next. You have a great set of skills that will be very useful in many aspects of the business
environment. We will greatly miss your presence.

We will keep in touch and let you know if we could use you in future projects. For now wherever
you choose to apply we will gladly send a recommendation on your behalf or put in a good word.

Again thank you for all that you have done for us and we wish you the very best. We know you
will do well anywhere you choose to work.
