Warning Letter for Negligence in Duty

Sometimes, the employees show the negligence in duty. The employers never like the unsatisfactory performance of the employee and they have a right to keep a check on the employees’ performance.

When the performance is not according to the standards of the company or there is misconduct by the employee, the warning letter for negligence in the duty can be written to the employee. The tone of the letter is completely formal.

Every organization has its own way to deal with the employees showing negligence in the duty. Some employers meet the employee personally and discuss the entire matter and try to sort things out.

The letter should be started with the statement indicating that this letter is to be served as a warning letter. Here is a sample a letter body to help you in crafting a professional warning letter for negligence in duty.
