This is a letter announcing the departure of an employee. This template will help any employer to announce an employee departure. It is designed to be used by an employer (or an HR officer or other similar person) to notify staff about an employee's departure.
It is common in many employers, for valued employees to be sent off with a letter and sometimes, a farewell party. Even without the festivities, however, many employers send out official announcements of employee departures, especially when the employees are in high-level roles.
How to use this document
This letter announcing an employee departure can be used by anyone who wants to announce to their company or organisation that an employee is leaving.
This letter is not designed for use by an employee who is resigning from their employment. If an employee wishes to notify their employer that they are resigning, use our Letter of Resignation (Employment).
This letter, as with most letters announcing employee departures, is quite complimentary of the employee. In it, basic information about the employee can be entered, such as their name, the year they joined the employer, and what they are doing next. If the employer is planning a farewell party for the employee, then the details of that can also be included.
Once the letter has been completed, it can be distributed to all relevant people and departments within the organisation.
There are no laws in Australia covering employee departure announcements. These are informal letters or documents sent to other employees as a courtesy, letting everyone know about the employee that is leaving.
