Dear EMPLOYEE NAME,
As you probably know, the Coronavirus pandemic has posed great challenges to our business operations. The many financial problems that have arisen as a result of this pandemic have led us to carefully review the position of [COMPANYX] on the market.
In addition to other efforts that will be made to reduce our operating costs in the short term, we believe that a smaller workforce is a step towards a viable business in this uncertain economic climate. That is why we are announcing our new voluntary layoff program.
Management does not currently select employees for layoffs. However, if you want to get fired, we are willing to offer the following termination benefits:
Continued payment of wages at (list pct)% of your usual wages for a period of [number] weeks after the end of your employment.
Continued enrollment in our group benefit plan for a period of [X] months.
A one-time cash payment of $(list amount), payable only to non-returning employees.
This dismissal package is available from [date] for all full-time employees. If you are interested in voluntary redundancy, please contact your HR representative or a member of the management team.
[NAME YOUR COMPANY] appreciates your service.
