•      Inform the IT department as soon as possible  (if possible)  that the Employee will be leving the company or he will be laid off
•      Disabled  their Domain/Email VPN accounts

•      Hide them  from GAL
•      Email forwarding  if  requested.
•      PST backup
•      Backup data
•      Shipping physical PC to charlotte to be checked and reformatted
•      Specify if it’s a desktop or laptop in the inventory list
•      Evaluate possible hardware upgrade (memory, hard drive)

That list actually looks pretty complete to me there are a few things I do in addition to what you have listed for terminated accounts.

1. Possibly grant access to mailbox or user directory on servers to employees manager/other person who will be doing their job

2. Move disabled user account to a "to be deleted" OU and hold for a period of time. Delete from AD completely when time is expired.
Depending on whether or not the user has higher privileges you may want to change passwords they had access to.
