Dear [add name],

Further to our meeting on [add date], which was held to discuss your conduct, I write to summarise our discussion and confirm the outcome.

[[Add name] was also present at the meeting]. You [were accompanied at the meeting by [add name]] or [chose not to be accompanied at the meeting].

I explained to you the Company’s concern with your conduct. You will recall that we discussed [state the precise nature of the misconduct or of the complaint and include references to any previous warnings that are still applicable].

You said in response [summarise what the individual said in their defence].

I informed you that we required you to [state the improvement required, how this might be achieved and any assistance that will be provided].

Your conduct will be closely monitored over the next [state timescale] and a review will take place on [add date], the “review date”.

In accordance with the Company’s discipline procedure, this letter constitutes a written warning. A note of this warning will be kept on file but will be considered “spent” for disciplinary purposes after a period of [12] months. Should your conduct not meet the required improvement by the review date or if, while this warning is live, there is any [further misconduct/cause for complaint] of a similar nature, further disciplinary action will be taken, which could lead to you receiving a final written warning.

In line with Company procedures, you have the right to appeal against this decision. If you wish to do so, you should write to [add name and title of person who will deal with the appeal] at [add address] within five working days of receiving this letter, detailing the grounds for your appeal.

Yours sincerely,
