Providing Supportive Documentation

It is important to provide substantial documentation that supports the specific details of what occurred to cause the employee’s discharge.

Suggested details:

  • What did the employee do to be discharged?
  • How was it substantiated that this incident took place?
  • How was the action against the policy?
  • How did they know the policy?
  • Has the employee been offered a warning?
  • How and when were they were warned?
  • Was the employee given the opportunity to improve?

It is important to remember that employees may have a very different outlook on the events that took place or even completely deny any wrongdoing, so the details are essential to proving misconduct.
