Normally, a formal warning notice is issued to employees who have violated company policies, acted unprofessionally, or been tardy. You should include in your employee handbook information about what constitutes a violation of your HR policies.

What to do when you need to warn an employee?

A warning notice can be issued easily and appropriately by following these steps:
  • Provide a clear explanation of the problem.
  • Talk about what needs to be changed.
  • Timeframes for corrections should be provided.
  • The consequences of state policy.
  • Change can be supported by providing support.

When does a formal warning need to be delivered?
  • Make sure you review the policy. It is important to review your company's disciplinary policy as well as the employee's contract before setting up a disciplinary hearing.
  • Don't let your emotions rule your decision.
  • Employees should be informed.
  • Disciplinary proceedings should be held.
  • Identify the actions you need to take.
  • It should be written down.
