 Memorandum of Reprimand




Memorandum of Reprimand

(AFMAN 34-310, Chapter 8, paragraph 8.2.4.)

8.2.4. Memorandum of Reprimand. A Memorandum of Reprimand is a formal disciplinary memorandum issued by a supervisor to an employee. It is used to correct significant misconduct or delinquency or repeated lesser offenses, and may be the last step in a progression toward suspension or removal. It will give clear warning that subsequent misconduct could result in more severe disciplinary action, including removal. Use it to discipline either a regular or flexible employee. Before issuing a Memorandum of Reprimand, the supervisor meets with the employee, tells the employee that he or she is considering a Memorandum of Reprimand due to the employee's misconduct; tells the employee the specific nature of the misconduct, including date, time, and place; and gives the employee an opportunity to explain his or her actions. After meeting with the employee, the supervisor may decide to take no action, orally admonish the employee (see paragraph 8.2.3), or issue a Memorandum of Reprimand. The supervisor makes a memo of what is said during the meeting with the employee. If the supervisor believes that a Memorandum of Reprimand is warranted, the supervisor prepares it. It is clearly identified with the subject: "Memorandum of Reprimand", and includes the following: A statement, "The purpose of this memorandum is to officially reprimand you for your conduct on _____(date)_____." The specific reason for the action, including the date, time, and place of the alleged misconduct. A statement that further misconduct could result in more severe disciplinary action, including removal. A statement that a copy of the Memorandum of Reprimand is placed in the employee's OPF for a period of 2 years. A statement that the employee has a right to file a grievance in accordance with the provisions of Chapter 9, or the negotiated grievance procedure, whichever is applicable. The supervisor ensures the NAF-HR reviews the memorandum before issuing to the employee. After NAF-HR review, the supervisor gives the original copy of the memorandum to the employee. The supervisor makes a note of the Memorandum of Reprimand, in pencil, on the employee's AF Form 971, files a copy with the employee's AF Form 971, and gives a copy to the NAF-HR for filing in the employee's OPF. This note is deleted and the copies removed and destroyed 2 years after the date of the memorandum.
