Thank you for meeting with me [Employee's Name],

I wanted to speak with you about some concerns we have regarding your punctuality at work.

Recently, there have been several instances where you have been late to work. For example, on [specific dates or instances], you arrived [minutes/hours] late. This consistent lateness is not in line with our company’s expectations and affects the productivity and morale of the team.

It's important that we address this issue in order to maintain a positive and efficient work environment for everyone. We value all of our employees and want to ensure that everyone feels respected and supported.

One thing we can do is set up a plan to help you improve your punctuality. This could include adjusting your start time, setting personal reminders, or even creating a performance improvement plan focused on punctuality. It's important that we work together to ensure that you meet the expectations we have for all of our employees regarding punctuality.

We will set up a meeting to discuss your plan in more detail. In the meantime, I encourage you to review our company policies regarding attendance and punctuality and make sure that your behavior aligns with them.

Thank you for your understanding and commitment to improving your punctuality. We want to see you succeed here, and we're here to support you in that process.
