UK insurance company Aviva accidentally fired all 1300 staff of its asset management division before quickly realising the gaffe and reassuring them the bluntly-worded email was intended only for one worker.
The email from London-based Aviva Investors' human resources department told staff to surrender any company property as they left the building and reminded them that they were prevented from sharing any company secrets, The (London) Daily Telegraph reported.
The email read, "I am required to remind you of your contractual obligations to the company you are leaving. You have an obligation to retain any confidential information pertaining to Aviva Investors operations, systems and clients."
After detailing what was required of the outgoing staff, the email closed by saying, "I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and wish you all the best for the future".
