The purpose of a Termination of Employment Following Previous Warnings Letter Template is to formally communicate to an employee that their employment is being terminated due to persistent misconduct or poor performance after prior disciplinary warnings.

The letter serves as a written record of the decision, clearly stating the reasons for termination and providing evidence of the employee's failure to improve despite previous warnings. The template aims to ensure procedural fairness by following the appropriate disciplinary process and adhering to relevant employment laws and regulations.

Additionally, it helps protect the interests of both the employer and the employee by providing a documented explanation for the termination.

  • Employment Rights Act 1996: Provides guidelines on fair reasons for dismissal, including persistent misconduct or poor performance after prior warnings.

  • Equality Act 2010: Ensures fair treatment during the disciplinary process, prohibiting discrimination based on protected characteristics during termination.

  • ACAS Code of Practice on Disciplinary and Grievance Procedures: Offers best practices for handling disciplinary matters and emphasises the importance of clear communication during termination.
