A reprimand is a written or oral reproach given as part of an employee’s disciplinary following an act of misconduct. In many cases, companies might consider written reprimand’s to be more formal or part of the employee’s company file. On the other hand, oral reproaches may not be so thoroughly noted. Depending on the employer’s policy, a written or oral reproach may be the entirety of the disciplinary action or it can lead to further consequences. For example, it is common for companies to allow for a certain number of written reprimands before taking punitive actions affecting employee’s rank, salary, etc.
