    I am sorry to bother you with commas again , but could you please check them in the following sentence:

    The employee’s manager will explain the reasons for the steps taken in this phase to the employee at the meeting in the presence of a personnel department representative, who will provide relevant advice concerning application of the procedure, and take the minutes of the meeting in duplicate.

    Thank you so much.

    Re: commas

    Hi, Hanka. Your sentence is too long, you need to use shorter sentences as well as commas:
    The employee's manager will explain to the employee the reasons for the steps to be taken in this phase. This meeting will be held in the presence of a representative from the personnel department, who will provide advice regarding the application of the procedure and record, in duplicate, minutes of the meeting.
