Warning Letter to Employees for Gossiping
You must consider this document as a warning letter that is being issued to you on account of gossiping in the office during working hours. As outlined in clause #17 of the employee’s handbook, your act falls under the category of the company rules violation.
On the 12th of August 20XX, it was reported to me through my reliable resources that you are spreading rumors in the office that Ms. Nina has an affair with Mr. Lee. I investigated the matter properly and kept a strict eye on their routines. After an intensive investigation of two weeks, I felt ashamed because the rumor spread by you not only turned out to be false but your act had caused extreme harm to the worth of both the above-mentioned employees. The notable thing in that report was that you did it deliberately in order to belittle Ms. Nina, who had rejected your proposal a month before.
While signing the contract with our company, you acknowledged that you had received and read the employee handbook which deals with the company policy about gossiping. That particular handbook also addresses the possible consequences of violating the policy. You are well aware of this rule that gossiping about any of the company employees is strictly prohibited within and outside four walls of the office. Our employees are our assets and we don’t wish to see them belittling at any cost.
The severity of the matter demands your immediate termination from the company but keeping in view your previous performance, I personally want to give you one more chance so that you would improve yourself morally and develop a good sense of professionalism. Consider this letter as a first and final warning from my side. Any further violation of any of the company’s policies will result in strict disciplinary action which may be in the form of possible termination.

In official terms, this is what we call unprofessionalism and violation of workplace discipline.
