    What I was told once was simply “This isn’t working out”. He was right. It wasn’t. Had he not “let me go” I had a resignation letter to hand him the following week.

    I would always shy away from any harsh terms that would seem cold and uncaring. Best to use the most sensitive phrases possible as you are dealing with a delicate subject area. If the purpose is to remove a person from employment, it’s purpose should refrain from being to cruel and overly harsh. To do so would lack the proper mental attitude of mindfulness.
