We have a policy in our company that if you will be late for 5 consecutive in 1 month you will be suspended for 3 days.
On my end, I was late for 64 minutes. (One Hour and four minutes) It just happened once on the month of January and I was given an I.R indicating that it is a Final warning one more late then they will give me NTE.
Our HR department informed me that even though I was not late for 5 consecutive I consume the whole minutes of late for being late once. HR said that it is in the Labor Code.
Can you Please explain to me if the rule is valid and the I.R is Valid also?
