Sample 1

Suggested subject: summary update Negligence of duty by staff

25th February 2018

Mrs Parkinson

No2. Park Avenue

Dear Sir

As requested by your good self, I made a sudden visit to the branch at Miko street, took the necessary pictures and the report as per my findings is presented below.
A few clients came in between the hours of 8 am to 1 pm and the customer relationship manager attended to them very well.

She gave them the necessary forms to fill out and registered their interest in the company. She thereafter directed them to the assistant sales manager who also carried out his duties diligently.

The cleaners were in their uniform, as opposed to the report received that they were often in casual wear. The office premises were visited 6 times during my stay there and it was cleaned thoroughly, leaving the environment fresh and tidy.

The Internal Control Officer was not in the office, and when asked, I was informed that he already took a leave of absence from you as his wife fell ill and was admitted to the hospital. In general, no staff at the Miko branch appeared to have neglected their duty but all worked according to their job description.

Based on the above, I recommend that a CCTV Camera be installed in every room so that whenever there is a complaint of negligence, the recordings can be played to apprehend any staff flouting rules and regulations and also neglecting his duty.

I hope I was able to carry out this role and present a succinct update that meets your expectation(s). The pictures taken are attached to this letter.

Yours faithfully,


Junior Assistant

Supply Chain Department

Suggested subject: summary update: job safety and standard operating procedures

Dear Sir:

Below is the update regarding our organizational safety and health administration procedures.

It is cultural that we designate specific staff members to various plants for safety purposes and this we keep practicing. It is also customary that we utilize diagrams, charts, and which are within the reach of every member of staff. It can be found at every branch of Maxxam and with every department.
As suggested, I contacted a translation services company to help translate all our manuals into different languages for ease of use, and our team is currently working on a plan to ensure all manuals are updated regularly.

Hope I covered all you require? Should you require further clarification(s), please don’t hesitate to point it out in a reply email and I shall attend to it immediately.

Yours faithfully,

As requested, the summary of the employment law research can be summarised as follows:
1. There are no new employment laws but amendments to sections of the old Labour Act.
2. At Section 2 (2), maternity leave beneficiaries were amended by adding ‘mothers who for one reason or another are required to stay with infants for longer’.
3. At Section 6 (4) (a), Trade Union was amended to read ‘Trade and Labour Unions or Associations’
4. At Section 43 (7), the minimum wage was increased by 5 cents.
Apart from the above, nothing more was changed in the Labour Act.
