Subject: Final Warning
This letter is to serve as a final warning:
Your continued unacceptable conduct adversely impacts the operations of our department and requires immediate and sustained improvement.
I have counseled you about these ongoing problems in an effort to help you perform at an acceptable level. You received email notices on dates because you failed to notify your supervisor prior to leaving the office. You received email notices on dates concerning the need to inform your supervisor about personal appointments at least one day in advance, except for emergencies. In addition, you have continuously displayed insubordinate behavior towards your supervisor, which includes confrontational and argumentative behavior.
A recent incident occurred on date in which you did not report to work. You did not submit a written request for time off prior to date, and you did not call the office to notify us you were not coming to work. On date, you were insubordinate when you failed to comply with my request for specific documents. Refusal to follow your supervisor’s instructions and failure to perform assigned tasks will not be tolerated.
Your unacceptable conduct has a negative impact on the functioning of the department. There must be immediate and sustained improvement in your behavior. Specifically, you must treat your supervisor appropriately. Furthermore, you must work as directed by your supervisor on assigned tasks.
Due to your unacceptable conduct, we are issuing you this final warning. If you do not immediately improve your behavior and sustain it at an acceptable level or if there are any other performance problems, your employment with the University will be terminated.
I acknowledge by my signature below that I have been afforded the opportunity to review and sign this correspondence prior to it being placed in my personnel file.
