The Employee Warning Letter is a written formal document that is used by an employer to inform their employee about their misconduct. The employer issues this letter to an employee who has disregarded the employer's rules to notify them of their violation and the repercussions. A warning letter points out the details of the employee's misbehaviour or issue of concern and includes words of caution.

In some organizations, when an employee commits misconduct, the employer issues a verbal reprimand (word of mouth) to the employee, and if the misconduct persists, the employee will receive a formal written warning and then a final warning. Depending on the severity of the issue, if the employee does not improve, the employee may be suspended, given a Termination Letter, or other disciplinary actions may apply. Overall, employees should adhere to their employer's code of conduct to avoid reprimands or any sanctions.

How to use this document

This document is used by an employer who is dissatisfied with their employee's bad conduct or performance at work. By issuing this letter, the employee will understand the nature of their misconduct and the consequences of their actions or inactions.
