Dear Austin parker,
I am very much aware that the nature of your job can be very taxing and tiring for you. I know the stress that comes with it, and I am very much aware that there are days when you just cannot keep up with the pressure of it all. In our company, missing a deadline once or twice can be quite understandable. However, you have missed a substantial number of deadlines already – 6 to be exact, and this has affected everyone else’s work as well. I have been receiving many complaints reporting that you have been doing the same in your other duties as well. We have already discussed this issue before, and you had guaranteed that you will change this. However, recent complaints state otherwise.
You are an asset to our company and it would be disappointing to see you go, but if you continue this trend of being late, we shall be forced to terminate your contract with us.
