How To Answer Query On Misconduct
Misconduct is an act of improper behaviour, violation of regulation and rules at organisations, government offices, institutions, etc. Your organisation may consider certain behaviour unacceptable, so it is important to be aware of the rules. Some of the rules may include
- No violent or vulgar language at the workplace;
- No romantic relationships with co-workers;
- No physical touching of other employees (it can offence your colleague);
- No stealing of physical and intellectual property;
There can be more or other regulations, so it is better to talk to your management about them.
Letter of apology for misconduct
You somehow intentionally or unintentionally made something that your organisation considered inappropriate. Firstly, you have to analyse your behaviour, where exactly you’ve been wrong and what your boss and co-workers think about it. In the letter, you should refer to the query served against you. Explain your situation and put up an apology to your boss. Do not try to deny the things you’ve been asked about and do not use any vague language. In the end, show that you realised that you were wrong. Also, promise not to do the misdeed again.
The State Ministerial Commissioner
23 September 2017
May i please refer to the query directed to me on the 29th day of June 2016 on the above subject matter.
Sir i have been counseled for unlike behaviors which indicate that i have failed to see the severity of the situation and the significance of a good relationship with all parties in the ministry as written in the query.
To prove this beyond a reasonable doubt, you may wish to inquire from the ministry HOD Pollution Control Eze Victor Kelechi and even the Permanent Secretary of the ministry.
I shall be courteous, considerate and prompt when serving the public. From today, I shall maintain respect and professional cooperation and conduct in my relationships with other HODs and other senior and junior staff in the ministry.
From now on i shall discharge my duties with high standards of honesty, integrity, and impartiality, flee from personal interest, considerations, and favoritism.
Your conclusion should look like this….
Sir, i humble request the Honorable Commissioner to dismiss the charge against me and exonerate me from any disciplinary action. I humbly submit for your kind consideration.
