About this document

As an employer, it is important that the correct procedures are followed when dismissing employees so as to prevent tribunal claims. This letter aids compliance with the law.

This is a letter from the employer that terminates the employment contract.

It states that a payment in lieu of notice (PILON) will be made and that the employee should not return to work.

It is suitable where you want to end an employee’s employment quickly - most often where the employee holds a senior position, or where he or she has been accused of a serious or criminal offence that may damage the reputation of your business.

Not requiring the employee to work a notice period (and rather going on garden leave) helps prevent him or her from taking the intellectual property of the business (such as customer lists or product data), or disrupting other employees, or causing further damage.

The letter is suitable for use by all types of business, of any size, and for dismissing employees at any level.
