Sample Disciplinary Action Letter

Dear [Recipient]

Hope you’re great. We had written you a letter previously regarding your discipline at work. However, we did not receive any response from your end. In the last directors meeting, we have been discussing your attitude at work which seems very poor and unacceptable.

In the recent meeting, it was discussed that your performance has been unsatisfactory constantly. One of the reasons for this poor performance is your lack of discipline in multiple ways. Hence, we have decided to take a disciplinary action against you rather than dismissing you.

[You can further add the disciplinary action that you have taken against the employee]
