Termination of employment (probation) letter template
Termination of employment (short service) letter template
It may be that you do not think an individual is the right fit for your company, or there could have been various conduct or capability issues that have raised legitimate concerns.
You may therefore legally dismiss an employee with less than 2 years service without the need to demonstrate a fair reason for the dismissal, and with no obligation to go through a fair disciplinary or dismissal procedure.
Employees only gain statutory protection against unfair dismissal after accruing two years’ continuous service with the same employer.
Note: if you have already started to follow a disciplinary or dismissal procedure (as per your written policy), you are advised to continue that process to its conclusion. You should not use this template in those circumstances.
