The boss made me sign a notice of disciplinary action (NODA), but it did not contain the sanction for the violations that i was accused of. It only contained 3 blanks __verbal warning ___written warning ___suspension. She wanted me to sign the blank (NODA) coz she determined the most appropriate sanction at that time.
When i was given a copy of the violations we committed, it was composed of 7 areas in our employees handbook.
a) posting signs/notes, unauthorized posting of signs, , notices without approval - first offense, verbal warning
b) making false or malicious statements against another employee, supervisor, or official that harm and destroy the reputation, authority or official standing of those concerned - first offense, 1 to 3 days suspension
c) improper conduct and acts of discourtesy or disrespect to other officers of the company at any time within company premises - first offense, 3-5 days suspension
d) improper conduct and or using disrespectful or offensive language or signs against another employee and others within company premises - first offense, 1-3 days suspension
e) vandalism - first offense, 3-5 days suspension
f) disclosure of confidential data/information to unauthorized persons - first offense, dismissal
g) negligence or carelessness in the performance of work - first offense, written warning
She kinda tallied all the sanctions which led to 12 days suspension. Those who were in the picture appearing to be sleeping were given 3 days suspension as per our code of discipline.
I want to know my rights in this situation. My NODA shows that I was found guilty of each of the 7 violations.
