The Importance of Warnings

September 26th, 2011 by

Employers beware! If you are considering terminating an employee for just cause (to avoid giving the employee a severance package), it is important to give verbal and written warnings, and to document all incidents. The employer should also not condone any inappropriate behaviour by the employee, such as perpetual lateness. In one case, an employee was late for work 57 times in about 5.5 months, but the court found that there was no just cause for the termination because the employer had condoned the behaviour!
