BlogContractsEmploymentEmployee Disciplinary Letter – Protecting Your Business with a Paper Trail

March 8, 2023by Jeffrey Davis

Having a through paper trail before firing an employee is critical to protecting yourself and your business. Employees are quick to bring claims against their former employer out of desperation and anger. It’s pretty common. They then seek out the assistance of these bottom-feeding employment firms that take any case they can and do it on a contingency fee basis (meaning they take a percentage). It’s not complex litigation for these employment law firms because they know that most small businesses have poor record keeping practices, rarely comply with the simple federal and state law employment requirements and will spend more money then its worth just defending themselves in a lawsuit. The following is a sample letter you can use and modify when disciplining a rogue employee. Consultation with an attorney is always recommended.
