As a result of the reduction of money budgeted for department areas, we are forced to cut down on our number of personnel. Under this plan, older employees will be asked to take early retirement, thus permitting the retention of younger people who represent our future. Therefore, a program to phase out older personnel by the end of the current fiscal year, via retirement, will be placed into effect immediately.
This program will be known as SLAP (Sever Late-Aged Personnel). Employees who are SLAPPED will be given the opportunity to look for jobs outside the company.
SLAPPED employees can request a review of their employment records before actual retirement takes place. This review phase of the program is called SCREW.
SCREW (Survey of Capabilities of Retired Early Workers). All employees who have been SLAPPED and SCREWED may file an appeal with upper management.
This appeal is called SHAFT (Study by Higher Authority Following Termination).
Under the terms of the new policy, an employee may be SLAPPED once, SCREWED twice, but may be SHAFTED as many times as the company deems appropriate.
If an employee follows the above procedure, he/she will be entitled to get: HERPES (Half Earnings for Retired Personnel's Early Severance) or AIDS (Assistance Incentive Direct Subsidy).
As HERPES and AIDS are considered benefit plans, any employee who has received HERPES or AIDS will no longer be SLAPPED or SCREWED by the company.
Management wishes to assure the younger employees who remain on board that the company will continue its policy of training employees through our: CENTRAL RESOURCES ASSISTANCE POLICY (CRAP). We take pride in the amount of CRAP our employees receive. We have given our employees more CRAP than any company in this area. If any employee feels they do not receive enough CRAP on the job, see your immediate supervisor. Your supervisor is specially trained to make sure you receive
all the CRAP you can handle. They are experts at administering CRAP!
And, once again, thanks for all your years of service with us.
Doesn't this sound all too true? Sure sounds like my last employer!
