This page is about the doublespeak term terminate
to fire somebody from their job
- How many factory workers can we terminate this month?
- Unfortunately the company has been forced to terminate some valuable staff members.
Also "termination" and "termination notice", as in "All the termination notices must be sent by Friday."
This is typically used in American English but may be used in other varieties of English too.
We were terminated because the company wanted to
