The following company notice represents the Best small company Layoff Letter I’ve ever seen. Thanks to Mal for emailing it to me:
My Dear Employees:
As the CEO of this organization, I have resigned myself to the idea that Joe Biden is our next President, and that our taxes and government fees will increase dramatically very quickly.
To compensate for these increases, our prices would have to increase at least 10%, however since we cannot increase our prices right now due to the dismal state of the pandemic, we will have to lay off sixty of our employees instead. This has really been bothering me since I believe we are family here and I didn’t know how to choose, who would have to go.
So, this is what I did. I walked through our parking lots and saw sixty ‘Biden Harris’ bumper stickers on our employees’ cars and have decided these folks will be the ones to let go.
I can’t think of a more, fair way to approach this problem.
They voted for change…so, now they got it.
I’ll see the rest of you at the company Christmas party.
