Employee Reprimand Template

An employee reprimand form is a letter of warning, but also a second chance. People can’t improve themselves without knowing what they’ve done wrong. This is a template for how to most effectively write a reprimand, what points to hit, and how to do so without causing the employee to become defensive. Provide the employee in question with tips on how to avoid a recurrence in the future and the plan of action in the case does. Evaluate their performance and outline workplace expectations. Training on employee behavior and code of conduct may be necessary.
