Final Written Warning
A final written warning is only used as a "last resort", when all other interventions have failed. Final written warnings will remain valid for 12 months. This warning is to be used as a final opportunity before resorting to the dismissal of an employee.
This final written warning can be issued to an employee for:
- a first offence, if the seriousness of the offence warrants such action; or
- repeated offences of misconduct which resulted in the employee receiving various written or verbal warnings;
This written warning should only be issued once the employee has been afforded an opportunity to present his or her case in answer to the charges against him or her. Therefore, before providing an employee with this written warning, we suggest that the employee is given a Notice of a Disciplinary Hearing
