Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today.
Before proceeding please note that as I am a practising solicitor, I am often in and out of meetings, travelling between clients or even at court when I pick your question up. This may even occur at weekends. Therefore, I apologise in advance but there may be a delay in getting back to you and providing my advice. Please be patient and I will respond as soon as I can. You do not have to wait here and you will receive an email when I have responded. For now please let me know how whether you have received any documentation from the hospital, or other evidence supporting their time off.

We are going to send the termination letter to the employee today. The basis of terminating their employment is that they have been disrupting the staff in the office and their disrespect for a senior manager. We are going to state the below, would this be ok?
Following reports from senior managers within xxxxx expressing dissatisfaction over attitude, it was decided to cease your employment on Monday 9th September.
Clearly, because you were not in on this date and have not been in since this could not happen, and therefore we are now writing to you to inform you of the decision.
