Dear Matthew,

At your semi-annual performance review, we had discussed several initiatives that you would need to undertake to improve your productivity and retain your position with Up and Down Incorporated. Three months later, your productivity has decreased further and I am left with no alternative but to terminate your position.

I do appreciate the energy with which you accepted your field sales position and the effort you made to get your territory's numbers up to par. Because of your positive attitude, I am giving you the option to resign rather than be terminated. This will allow you to avoid having to put a termination on your resume and it will keep a termination out of your employment file.

If you choose to resign, please send me a resignation letter to the company address no later than September 10, 2014. If I do not receive a letter of resignation, then I will be forced to assume that you prefer to be terminated and I will take the appropriate actions.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call me at 555-342-5565 or email me at

Sincerely Yours,

Jessica T. Keiler

District Sales Manager

Up and Down Incorporated
