About the Sample
Write-Ups

The remainder of this book consists of the 101 sample write-ups. They are organized according to the kind of problem behavior involved, and in general the write-ups deal with more serious charges as you go through the book. Some of the write-ups are connected by a story line involving the same employees and managers, so you can follow the progression from first infraction to final dismissal (when necessary) of an employee.

The format of the write-ups is the same throughout except for the termination notices, which are in letter format. The standard elements in the document template appear in roman type, while the narrative (which would vary from case to case) is shown in italics. Figure 6-1 shows a complete, blank template. The template is also included on the CD-ROM at the back of the book.

One of the most important parts of the template is the Employee Acknowledgment, which comes at the end of the write-up. As I explained in Chapter 4, owing to space limitations, the Employee Acknowledgment section is not actually shown in the following samples in the book, since it doesn’t vary in most write-ups. It is shown only here in Figure 6-1 and at the end of Write-Up #1, but it should be part of any write-up you do. When the acknowledgment does vary in wording because of special circumstances (e.g., in final written warnings), the change is indicated in a note at the end of the write-up sample in the book.

The full Employee Acknowledgment section, however, does indeed appear in each writeup on the CD-ROM. So be sure to review the Acknowledgment section every time you include it in an actual written warning that you create. After all, you won’t necessarily see this section on the pages that follow, but you can rest assured that it’s available on the CDROM that’s attached to the back of the book jacket.
