A Warning Letter is a written document used to inform an employee about his/her misconduct. It is usually written and issued to an employee who has disregarded or flouted the rules of an organization. A warning letter points out the details of the performance or issue of concern and words of caution.
In some organizations, when an employee commits a misconduct, an oral warning (word of mouth) is issued to the employee and if the misconduct persists, a warning letter will be issued. If the employee does not improve, depending on the seriousness of the issue, the employee may be suspended, or given a letter of termination of employment.
