First warning letters are being given to employees who have involved themselves in an issue, process, or an event that is unacceptable with regard to the rules and regulations of the company. A first warning is usually a signal for an employee to not do his or her actions that have been subjected for disciplinary actions anymore.
Processes for correction are being done to assure that the professional progress of the employee is being considered and that there are no issues that may arise again concerning the same actions.
