  • Wrongful Corrective Action? Pennsylvania

    On Thursday last week, we had a pretty bad ice storm. On Tuesday and Wednesday preceding, I asked my direct report if I called off due to weather, if it would entail any corrective action. He said no, and that weather related call-offs can not be used against someone as far as corrective action. Today, he told me he was wrong about the policy and said I would be put on written warning.

    Is this something a manager can do? Tell you one thing and do another?

    If that is the company policy, it is a stupid one, but hold them to it, if you can. If that was the dumb comment of someone that did not know better (likely), then you have a write up. A write up is not the kiss of death.

      Right, but I mean, he's my manager. I didn't just ask another employee.

        I understood that.

        I also understand that even managers can say things that are not in accordance with company policy. Sometimes they don't understand the rules laid out in the company policy manual.

          Ah ok.

          This isn't the first time he's been wrong about something. But I thought he corrected that problem. That's why I asked him so many times. Next time, I'll go higher for my info. Thanks.
