Should I have a conversation with the employee about the termination of his employment contract?

We always recommend employers to first discuss with your employee in person that you will not be extending his employment contract.

Does it matter whether the employee has performed well or not?

It does not. However, we will include a certificate in the letter if the employee has performed reasonably to well. This certificate will not be included if you think the employee did not do well enough. All of this is optional, but we recommend to include it, since it will benefit the relationship between yourself and the (former) employee.

If the employee has any vacation days left over at the end of employment, you must pay them out.
