Sometimes our career path is not always as clear as we would like it to be. A termination letter can carry bad news, but it can also give some insight as to where your career path could be heading.

Dear Agnes Kilter,
We regret to inform you that your route and position will be eliminated as of April 8. Please note that this is a layoff and not a termination and we are hoping to be able to bring you back at some point in the future.
As the business needs of our clients change, we find it necessary to alter our business to fit those needs. In recent years, three major clients have decided to work with a different bus service and that has forced us to eliminate several major routes and layoff many valuable employees such as yourself. Please know that this is not an indication of your performance, nor is it any kind of indicator that your customer service levels were inadequate.
Within the next three days, please turn in your uniform and identification badge to the operations department. Upon returning your company issued materials, you will be issued your final paycheck, which will include all vacation and sick pay. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
