1. Mention Reason of termination
2. Mention times you have given for warning times
3. Mention improvement or not improvement
4. Mention output of final warning
5. Mention Full and Final Settlement procedure
I hope these points will help you.
As far concern to the Offer and appointment letter, both are varies based on company's or organization's policy and nature of business.
Apart from this concern to the termination letter this is also based on reason of termination. So there is no any fix format.
You can frame this letter as per disciplinery action requirement.
Iquite agree with bhagwan, but at the same time on termination letters, be careful on the grounds of termination whereby the termnator can challeng his case in Labour law or courts in that matter.
ensure when your terminating a person that all resourceful disciplinary action and clause are followed... again depending on the nature of offence he/she is terminated.
Termination of a criminal charges is straight forward and that is once the courts have made a ruling against the employee then employer may issue the letter of termination but if it is of a personal nature or breach of policy I suggest you look at precedent set
My point is sometimes the terminator can, because company tend to overlook the processs or procedure of its internal resolution process and is liable for negligence or unfair termination the company can loss alot in terms of its reputation and monetary value and likewise the leadership position is question of his/her integrity of such decision made.
also the person prerparing the termination letter is question of his/her findings. So be very careful in terms of its legal implication should it be challenged in the courts of law

Example: "You are required to perform the duties and responsibilities related to your position at any division, department or section in the Company or within the Group of Companies. You will be deployed at .......... (state place)."
This is where the details of the working hours and lunchtime / rest are stated. Different sample appointment letter puts it differently. The aim is the same.

Lunch time: 12.00 noon to 1.00 p.m.
Two (2) tea breaks of 15 minutes each.

This states the number of days given to employees and the number of public holidays observed by the Company. The number of days of annual leave is subject to a minimum for certain groups of employees as provided for under legislation. There are also public holidays that organizations are required to observe. If possible, request for sample appointment letter from other organizations so that you can verify the figures.

This states the contribution to Employees Provident Fund (if any). Legislation may provide for this.
GROUP PERSONAL ACCIDENT INSURANCE (GPA)
This may be a rider on group life insurance or has a a rider on "hospitalization and surgical".
RULES, REGULATIONS & CONFIDENTIALITY
It is important to state this especially when your organization has no written disciplinary rules and procedures. Sample appointment letters will help.
"You shall at all times, devote your full attention and skill to the affairs of the Company and will endeavor to your utmost ability to promote and advance the interests of the Company.
Accordingly, you undertake that:
you will under no circumstances make available your services to any undertaking, or have any interest directly or indirectly in any other undertaking or activity which might interfere with the proper performance of your duties without first obtaining the written permission of the Company;

Sub-paragraph 2 may specify that information available in the public domain is excluded.
This is an important provision. Most if not all appointment letters contain this term.
"After confirmation of your employment, notice of termination of employment will be three (3) month’s notice in writing or three (3) month’s salary in lieu of notice from either party.
Notwithstanding the aforementioned, the Company shall be entitled to terminate your employment without notice, indemnities and compensation in any of the following events:

In the public sector, the compulsory retirement age is imposed by legislation. Other organizations have the option of using such retirement age or any other age subject to legal provisions, if any.
The retiring age is at fifty-five (55) years.
