Dear Amit,

You had gone for a long leave starting from 20th April, 2017 to 20th May, 2017. As it was a month-long leave, it was very much a part of your duty to hand over your work to your team members. It was quite disappointing to know that you went on the leaves without giving any brief on the projects that you were handling.

Being a part of the organization, we are sure that you are aware that during one’s absence from work, company cannot afford to put any work on hold. And any work loss because of non-handing over of work is a serious act. Department of Marketing, therefore, will look into this act with complete seriousness because it had led to many delays in the work.

We would like to warn you that if in future you repeat this behavior then the company will be compelled to take hard actions against you. You must understand that you are a team leader and you must work to set good examples for others to follow. Please consider this letter as the final warning as we would not appreciate such irresponsible behavior in our organization.
