Dear Ms. Yarnell:
This is to inform you that Abacus Insurance has exercised its right to terminate your
employment effective today. This decision is based on your violation of our company’s
standards of performance and conduct at the annual holiday party.1
You will receive information regarding conversion of company benefits from the
Human Resources department in the near future.

tempted to place several men’s hands on her breasts. The supervisor chose not to describe these actions in detail
in this letter for the sake of propriety.
