Personal Problems

Dear [[Recipient]]:

Termination of an employee is never a happy chore, and we make all efforts to avoid the situation.  However, unless your work performance shows substantial improvement, Dell will be forced to terminate our association.

Personal problems affect all of us periodically.  When these occur, help should be sought so that such problems do not affect work performance to the point that an individual is unable to function effectively.

Unless you seek professional help and make the effort to perform well once again, we will have no choice left but to sever the relationship.

The excellence of your past record cannot be overlooked, and I trust that your future efforts can be equally successful.
