This reference letter explains why the employee was laid-off from her position, in addition to providing an excellent reference.
To Whom it May Concern:
Mary Foley has been employed by Company, Inc. since June 1, 2003. During this period, she demonstrated all the qualities that employers seek in searching for promotable employees. She has an excellent capacity to quickly grasp new theories and applications, and has always sought to gain additional responsibilities.
Mary's zeal to improve herself has been displayed by her attendence at evening school to complete her Master's Degree. Her competence is such that, in the absence of our Branch Manager, she was very capable of directing the entire work force to get the job done.
It is unfortunate for Company, Inc. that, due to economic constraints, we must reorganize our organization and lose valued employees such as Mary. I would highly recommend her for any position or career that she may now choose to pursue.
If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to call me.
