The guiding principle coming out of the courts in the case of employee discipline is that, despite genuine concerns about an employee’s work performance and attitude, an employer cannot simply terminate without notice due to these concerns. The employer is required to utilize a system of progressive discipline in order to notify the employee of the problem and allow the employee to improve the situation.
