Dear Mr. Howe:

It is with my deep regrets that I inform you that Business Writing section here at Oregon
State University will be doing some downsizing. While you expertise and experience as
Chief Editor are amazing, your services will no longer be needed.

There are several different options available to you depending on if you would like an
early retirement, unemployment benefits, or if you would like to continue working.

We have a severance package that we offer that should be able to support you for a few
months until you are able to find something new.

There are early retirement options available as well as relocation possibilities for you
within Oregon State University. Unemployment benefits are available to you for up to a
year through the State of Oregon.

If you would like to, you can contact Human Resources to go through all these options
with them. I have worked with Nancy Smith in the past and she has always been very
helpful, and her direct number is 541-737-9999.

I would be happy to write a letter of recommendation for you for which ever direction
you choose to go and wish you good success in what ever you do. You have been a great
asset to the company and university and you will be greatly missed.
