  • If you feel you need to explain that the person is not longer with the company, that is how I would word it. Whether they were fired or quit that is no one else's business. Other than that what the other ladies have said is great.

  • Try this from this website.

    Instead write, “We are sorry to have to inform you that you will be laid off from your (name of position or title) with (name of department) at (time and date).” Show empathy without superfluous sugarcoating. Example: “We appreciate the work you’ve done.”
