Letter of Reprimand

The letter of reprimand process is used to formally address and document performance concerns and corresponding expectations for classified staff and university staff; typically initiated if standard coaching is not working. The employee's supervisor must initiate requests for letters of reprimand to the College of Arts and Sciences Appointing Authority, by providing a written justification including documented performance issues and expectations addressed to date. Performance concerns raised in the letter of reprimand should be tied to the employee's performance planning and evaluation document.

The appointing authority will review the justification, collaborate with Campus Human Resources, and provide the supervisor with next steps. If approved, a letter of reprimand will be created, signed, issued and included in the employee’s personnel file.
