If a warning period expires, how feasible is to refer back to that warning to justify further action or dismissal?

    Personally I recommend that 'warnings' clearly identify how the standard is not being met, any actions or steps to address this and remedy the situation so that the employee might meet the standard, and then some wording about maintaining or sustaining the standard going forward....without an expiry date.
    Standards of behaviour or performance do not have expiry dates, therefore in behaviours or performance that do not meet the reasonable standard managers need also outline for the employee that if the standard is not achieved and maintained then future sanctions may be applied.
