Sub: Suspension from work

Dear Mr. Richard,

The purpose of this letter is to inform you that you have been suspended from work for ten days effective December 22nd, 2022. The reason for the suspension is your lateness to work on regular basis.

It has been observed that from last two months you have been reporting to work late. As you are aware that the reporting time for everyone at Zenith Technologies is 9 am and we are very particular about timely reporting of our employees but you have time and again reported to work beyond 10 am. Your supervisor, Mr. Jacob Black, has given you many warnings about the same and has also submit you in writing for the reason for late reporting at the office but you have failed to do so.

The management is not appreciative of this kind of conduct and therefore, we have been compelled to suspend you from work. We are hopeful that after the suspension, you will report to work every day at 9 am without any failure.

In case you have anything to explain from your end, please feel free to get in touch with the HR Department.
