Termination Letter for Cheating the Company

Every company has specified a predefined set of standard operating procedures (SOPs) which helps the employees to carry out routine tasks in an organized and robust manner. These SOPs define the limits and procedures to the employees. Many of these SOPs have been drafted after various trials and tests and clearly delineates the red lines so that they do not get crossed at any cost.

Things like the company’s resources, minutes of confidential meetings, cybersecurity, pilferage, tampering with accounts; these all are defined as red lines, and crossing them is tantamount to cheating. Strict disciplinary action needs to be taken against such offenders and for that, a company has formulated a draft specimen letter for details to be filled on a requirement basis.

The sample letter has been drafted as such that it can be used on a circumstantial basis filling in only the missing details, that is to say, the body of the letter remains generally the same, however, minute specific details (like employee’s name, department, date of termination, benefits s/he can enjoy after termination, etc.) get filled later on. These specific details are highlighted in red italics in the sample letter.

An example of such a termination letter on account of cheating is appended below.
