Dear [[Recipient]]:

Promptness is important to the management and the customers at Bendigo Savings and Loan Association.  Therefore, while we make allowances for occasional lateness, consistent lateness cannot be tolerated and offenders must be dismissed.

You have reported late to work for 17 out of the last 18 days.  Unless this situation is remedied immediately, you will be asked to leave our organization.

Should there be extenuating circumstances, please come in and speak with me.  If there is a problem, perhaps we can work it out together.  Bendigo S & L never likes losing a good employee.  I’m sure that the problem can be eliminated.
