Subject: Layoff announcement
As you all must be aware of the situations and realities of the deteriorating economy of our company, it saddens me to announce a temporary layoff of all the staff members of the accounting sector. It pains me to announce this layoff but this is in accordance with the company’s policies and conditions.
All the important information and notification relating to this layoff would be sent to all the employees and the staff members latest by this week. The layoff employees would be compensated by giving two month’s severance pay and would notified about their affected pay check.
Senior managers of the company have given us the approval to take this decision to curb the deteriorating economic conditions of the company. The layoff is not permanent and all the employees would be transferred to a new job post if possible.
We want to talk to the affected employees and discuss with them about their severance benefits, plan distributions and guide them for their follow up job posts and hence we are planning of organizing a meeting for the same. All of you are requested to be a part of this meeting and raise your desired queries.
We really appreciate your hard work and contributions to this company. We are extremely sorry, the layoff was truly unavoidable. All the best for your future endeavors!
