    Default labor laws-ca and write up policy

    I am wondering if it is required to give an employee a written write up and warning for something before terminating. If so how many, and does the employee have to sign the write up? Also, if requested at time of termination, must the employer provide a letter stating that the employee is terminated? and a copy of the last time period hours?
    I am saying this because I was terminated without previous warning for the same thing, and they refused to give me a letter stating that I was terminated as well as refusing to give me a copy of my hours.
    What should I do?
    I was past my probation period and a full time permanent employee.

    No, there is no law requiring a write up of any kind before termination. It is a good practice in most cases but it is not required by law.

    "Service letters" are only required by law in California if the employer is a public utility. They are not required to give you a written termination letter. I'm not sure if they must give you a copy of your hours - one of the payroll people can address that.

    In California, I do recall that copies of time cards must be provided if requested, but I don't have the cite at hand.

    Why do you need them?
    I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.
