In conjunction with the letter overnighted to your home yesterday, this letter is to
notify you that your employment with XYZ Company was terminated effective today.
Our records show that you did not report to work or speak with your supervisor since
Saturday, September 27. Therefore, we have concluded that you have voluntarily
abandoned your job.
Your coverage under the XYZ Group Healthcare Plan will end effective September 30.
You will be notified by Axiom, our COBRA administrator, of your option to continue
after-tax participation under the plan through the Consolidated Omnibus Budget
Reconciliation Act of 1985 (COBRA), beginning October 1. If you elect to continue
your contributions, you will be dealing directly with Axiom. You can reach Axiom to
obtain the costs of COBRA coverage or for additional information at 1-800-555-1234.
Our records indicate that you are in possession of company property, which includes a
company-issued Blackberry, a laptop, an ID badge, and a security access card. Please
make arrangements to return these items by contacting Ashley Morley or Josilin

Additionally, if you are currently receiving reciprocal cell phone service, your gratis
