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.
