Reprimand Letter to an Employee for Bad Behavior

A friendly working environment brings positive energy in the employees to complete the tasks with a peaceful mind. However, work environments are stressful. It can be due to completing a project in time, sending emails to old clients, or looking after legal matters. One needs to be strong enough to deal with these situations.

A stressful situation may lead to some unexpected circumstances. One such situation may occur when an employee loses the temperament and behave badly with the colleagues. It is not compulsory that one employee has behaved badly due to the stressful situation of work. It can be personal grudges or personal/inherited behavior of an individual.

Whatever is the reason if some employee has behaved badly with his/her colleague it is treated as unethical attitude and legal actions are taken. In this situation, the manager of the company will write a reprimand letter to the employee for his/her bad behavior.

A sample reprimand letter to employees for bad behavior has been provided here for guidance. I hope it helps!

Mr./Ms. [NAME HERE], the company has been greatly censured by the conduct shown by you to your colleagues. Dear, you had been a very diligent and admirable person with a higher sense of responsibility and willingness towards work, but the manner you are presenting these days is incomprehensible.
