If your SAO is sleeping while on duty, first he/she should be give verbal warning. This verbal warning should be given by his/her senior only (to whom he/she reports to). If the SAO is still delinquent then issue the warning letter.
By the if your SAO sleeps during working hours then probably he/she does not have sufficient job. Have you formulated KRA for this post? Have you linked this KRA to the performance appraisal? Is performance appraisal linked to the salary?
I saw that managers are unable to sleep even at night also because of the work stress. Now here is a person who sleeps merrily on duty! It appears that this position is nothing but sinecure!
