Most companies have very strict rules when it comes to misconduct on employees’ part and severe action is taken against the offending party. These rules are usually laid out in employee contracts and since employees have signed the contracts, they know the barriers of conduct within which they need to stay.
Unfortunately, at times, these barriers are crossed and an employee does end up violating the contract which can lead to immediate disciplinary action or even termination. If something of this sort has happened (intentionally or unintentionally), we recommend that you take matters in your own hands by apologizing to your boss on an immediate basis. By doing so, you will not only be able to save your job but will also be able to put your point across to your boss – especially if you feel that you have been wronged.
Either way, an apology letter must be written to your boss so that you can save yourself from being suspended or removed from your position. The following apology letter sample can help you write one.

Dear Ms. Prince:
I would like to express my deep regrets and apology for what transpired during the project meeting this afternoon. I am aware of the fact that I was not being targeted on a personal level but ended up taking it that way and flaring up at you –an action that I had no right to execute.
Having worked for UBM Tech for almost two years now, my loyalties are with the company and I regret that it didn’t seem that way this afternoon. I must admit that I misunderstood your take on the marketing angle of the project and ended up raising my voice but please rest assured that I was only trying to protect the essence of the project and did not mean to be rude. I understand that this is no excuse for my outburst but I assure you that nothing similar will ever transpire again.
My aim is to work in sync with your ideas on this and I will do whatever is in my power to make sure that I become “help” and not a “hindrance”. I apologize once again for the way I conducted myself and assure you that it will not happen again.
Thank you for understanding and giving me a chance to prove myself once again.
