Poor performance HOW TO WRITE A WARNING LETTER FOR EMPLOYEE CONDUCT STEP 1 DOES THE SITUATION CALL FOR A WARNING LETTER? From a documented verbal warning to a final termination of employment, how you choose to handle an employee will vary depending on the severity of the employee's misconduct. However, a written warning can avoid any miscommunication between the employer and employee. STEP 2 DECIDE WHO SHOULD WRITE THE LETTER No matter who writes the warning letter-they're often ghostwritten by a human resources specialist-the letter itself should come from the employee's direct supervisor. STEP 3 DOCUMENT EVERYTHING Keep track of any verbal and written communication with the employee. It can be useful both for reminding an employee of what you've already told them and when, and for protecting you in the event of a lawsuit down the road. Also, it's a good idea to have the employee sign somewhere that they've received and understand the warning letter. STEP 4 WHAT SHOULD THE WRITE-UP CONTAIN? First, outline the conduct that was unacceptable. Second, identify the required or expected conduct. Lastly, contain the consequences of a failure to follow that prescribed or proscribed behavior. STEP 5 DELIVERY Holding the conversation privately and holding it without the person's co-workers knowing are two separate things. Exercise discretion and communicate via email that you need to speak with the employee, so you can keep the situation under wraps. However, delivering a warning letter should be done in person. STEP 6 FOLLOW UP If the employee responds to being written up positively, follow up with positive feedback for their efforts to change conduct. If the employee responds in a negative way, you want that employee out of the company as soon as possible to avoid further problems.
