  • Point System in workplace- New York

    Hi, my employer formerly docked everyone 3 minutes pay per minute we were late for work. Now, instead, they give us a points each time we are late and as the points add up we can be written up and eventually terminated. They make us sign a paper each time we get a point "so we know" how many points we have. When they gave us notice of the "point system" they went back a year to tally up points.

    Is there some legal reason we have to sign for each point?

    Also, if you are suspended ar work can your employer suspend you at a later date that is convenient to them or does it have to be done right away?

    Thank you for all your time and Help.

    No, there is no legal reason you have to sign for your points. That is company policy, not law. Signing or not signing makes no difference under the law except to verify that you know how many points you have.

    No law dictates when you can be suspended for any infraction. That is up to the employer.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.
