Starting this year, my company decided to be more strict when it comes to attendance. Employees are allowed to come late in the office up to 30 mins without having the deduction on the payroll. But an employee is only allowed to have a maximum of 110 minutes of late per month.
I am part of HR. Last April 14, my colleague in-charge of ER/IR, mentioned to me that Iam already on the 3rd offense (my lates for March) of habitual tardiness. I was shocked because I never received any notice that I am already beyond the allowable tardiness. So they looked for the first 2 notices that was never served to me. When they located it, they asked me to sign the 2 notices (for the 1st and 2nd offense). I signed it but I also noted the date (same date for both). Now, they are about to release the 3rd notice which is bound for suspension.
I find it really unfair if they're going to serve me the 3rd offense notice and suspend me. The notices given to me were too late (offenses made last Jan & Feb), served only on mid-April. There was no formal or even informal talk/discussion about the offenses I made. Should they push through with the suspension, what do you think is the best thing for me to do? If I was informed, I would've been more careful.mindful in using the grace period.
Please advise Sir.
