Reprimand

Sample Letter 11.67 was written to formally reprimand an employee for inappropriate use of company materials, in this case the e-mail system that the company used. Reprimands should be clear and controlled, remaining professional without degenerating into insult. This writer explains the situation initially and then proceeds to inform the recipient why his actions were inappropriate. The conclusion is both complimentary and cautionary, letting the chastised employee know his value to the company but firmly restating company policy. The "cc: personnel" is as threatening as the writer needs to be, and the message is emphasized by these two words.

Sample letter 11.67. Letter of reprimand for inappropriate behavior (full-block format).
