May i ask if there is a format or right wordings to prevent labor cases.
The purpose of this letter is to confirm the outcome of a recent review by the management of its operations.

In order to minimize labor cases regarding redundancy, it is vital to inform those who will be terminated via redundancy why such has happened, with the necessary data of such research done by the company shown to them accordingly. There is no way to prevent labor cases from happening, especially if the employees have a union and they feel that the basis for redundancy is lacking. If litigation occurs, then it must be proven by competent evidence that such termination by redundancy was done legally and with enough basis by the employer.

Preventing litigation from happening stems from the strength of the employee and employer relation, that no ill feelings have been harbored by the employees and the employer did his best in providing a fair and reasonable working environment for his employees.

In regards the wordings, I am not sure if it could have been worded better. Seeking an attorney's help in drafting termination letters may be best in order to have the best possible termination letter for redundancies.
