We make it simple to create a Employee Warning Letter

Use the Employee Warning Letter document if:

  • You want to officially warn an employee about attendence, performance, behavior or other issues that must be addressed.

Sample Employee Warning Letter

More than just a template, our step-by-step interview process makes it easy to create an Employee Warning Letter.

Save, sign, print, and download your document when you are done.

You expect to have great employees, but if you face the difficult task of warning someone who's not cutting it, write an Employee Warning Letter to your employee. The Letter informs your employee your business standards haven't been met, letting the employee know you're aware that they have conducted themselves in an inappropriate way. The letter includes steps the employee must take and a timeframe to correct the situation. If possible, an Employee Warning Letter needs to be backed up with other documentation: attendance records and performance reviews are common proof of an employee's poor performance. If you later terminate the employee, they'll have a difficult time suing you or causing a labor dispute if you gave them ample, written warning.
