Sample letter to announce a bad news to employees

We regret to inform to you that due to the current economic recession, the management has decided that you that we will not be giving Diwali bonus to our employees this year. We find this action necessary in order for us to cut costs due the recent market scenario.

We understand that this will create some difficulties for you during this festive period but we believe that taking this step is far better than laying off several employees or cutting down salary or benefits. With your help this will be only a temporary setback. Should any other changes arise, we will inform you.

We have experienced downturns before and rebounded perfectly well. We are confident this slump will improve as the next financial begins. Your continued excellent work shall surely allow our company to recover from our current situation very soon.

    We are deeply saddened to announce you that our turnover for the year 2013-2014 is unexpectedly low and the company is facing a state of financial downside. The management has decided that we shall have to reduce our employees in order to cut down the expenses of the company.

    We have strived to our best intensity to avoid this circumstance but now that there is no other way we could stabilize our financial crisis, we are sorry to inform you that we will have to terminate the jobs of a number of our employees working in various departments.

    We are mainly looking forward to terminate the positions that are being held by freshers, part-time employees and interns. However, we shall also have to terminate the jobs of some of our full-time employees who have been with us for some time from now and contributed their work towards the good of our company.

    We are grateful to you all for your endeavours and diligence towards your work with our company. We shall appreciate if you cooperate with us in this time of obscurity.

    We assure you that it is only a permanent measure and we hope to be back into profitable business soon. Once our situation stabilizes and we look for new employees, you shall be the first one we will contact.

    The company shall assist you in getting a new job with our business contacts and is also ready to support you with subordinate pays until you secure a new job.
