While everyone likes a fun boss, the CEO of Uber has once again perhaps taken it too far. 

Travis Kalanick warned employees going on a work trip to Miami in 2013 to make sure any sex was consensual and discouraged anyone from throwing kegs off a building, according to an internal memo obtained by tech site Recode.

Uber last week dismissed 20 employees and issued final warnings for seven after a wide-reaching investigation into sexual harassment, discrimination and bullying at the company.

The latest email, released as part of the investigation, is reportedly known as 'the Miami letter' among Uber employees and contained a list of 'dos and don'ts' for the trip, which was to celebrate the company's success.

"Do not have sex with another employee UNLESS a) you have asked that person for that privilege and they have responded with an emphatic 'YES! I will have sex with you' AND b) the two (or more) of you do not work in the same chain of command. Yes, that means that Travis will be celibate on this trip. #CEOLife #FML," the email read.

'FML' is an abbreviation for 'f**k my life'. 

However he also encouraged employees to let loose and enjoy themselves, urging them to "have a great f**king time". 

"This is a celebration! We've all earned it."

Uber is expected to reveal the results of a second investigation by law firm Perkins Coie into the company's culture next week.
