First Unauthorised Absence Letter
This First Unauthorised Absence Letter should be used where an employee has failed to come into work, and has not contacted the employer to account for their absence. The purpose of the letter is to make contact with the employee, to discover whether the unauthorised absence amounts to a resignation on the part of the employee.
The letter gives the employee the opportunity to refute the assumption that they have resigned, giving a date by which they must contact the company with a reason for their absence and their failure the contact the company.
This letter should be used in conjunction with the Final Unauthorised Absence Letter which confirms the employee’s implied resignation where the employee has not responded to the First Unauthorised Absence Letter.
Optional phrases / clauses are enclosed in square brackets. These should be read carefully and selected so as to be compatible with one another.
This letter template is in open format. Either enter the requisite details in the highlighted fields or adjust the wording to suit your purposes.
