Ben Jones : Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. What is the official reason used to terminate our employment?
Customer: Thanks is it possible to upload a scanned letter to this website? In informal discussions with my boss, it is because the role I am in will no longer exist going forward, plus in discussions with my boss I have said that this is a role I did not want in a restructure and given to to me. In the letter received from the company, they mention it is because I was offered the role in a restructure that I did not want and it is not where my career aspirations lie so the company "now need to formalise this and confirm your exit date". They then confirm my exit date. Recent appraisal was relatively positive too.
Ben Jones : yes you can do - you may use the upload icon, it should be a paperclip around the area where you would usually type up your answer
Customer: Sorry - I cannot see an upload icon, so instead I will type the letter.
Customer: Dated 20th May 2013 (not on headed paper, but signed by my Boss and address to my home address).
Customer: "Dear XXXX", over the last 2-3 months we have had a number of discussions about the requirements of the role of XXXX. Your openess and honesty during these meetings has helped us to reach a conclusion that I think Suits both of us.
Customer: I understand that at the time of re-structure when you were offered this position you said that this was not a role that you wanted, but you were happy to remain with the business to see us though this transition period. Subsequently we have both agreed that this is not where your career aspirations lie and does not play to your strengths. We now need to formalise this and confirm your exit date.
Customer: The letter confirms that your employment with XXXX will cease on 31st August 2013 on the basis of our mutual agreement. This period incorporates your entitlement to 3 months' notice.
Customer: I take this opportunity to thank you for your contribution during the transition period. If I can assist you in any way with your job search please do not hesitate to ask me. I have enjoyed working with you and wish you every success with your studies and future career.
Customer: If you have any questions regarding this please do not hesitate to discuss them with me"
Customer: signed by my boss
Customer: In discussion, that have asked if I could reply back with confirmation this is OK and I agree to this letter, plus raise any questions or concerns I have.
Customer: Would I also potentially be able to ask if I could get 3 months salary when I do leave, even though I have worked my 3 months notice (probably my ideal situation)
