Hello and thank you for your question.
The law doesn't specify how many warnings an employer has to give, rather employers are simply required to act reasonably when terminating or disciplining staff. This means whether more one two or more warnings are warranted will depend on the context. For example, a staff member who is stealing can be dismissed without any warnings, whereas if an employer sacks a staff member for being five minutes late to work, without issuing any prior warnings would almost certainly be liable for wrongful dismissal.
If you elaborate on the circumstances I may be able to give you a more specific answer, however, I otherwise trust the above assists.
