Occasional problems with traffic or family issues sometimes cause employees to be late for work.  But what do you do when the “occasional” isn’t occasional anymore – it’s rather chronic and habitual?

  1. Develop and implement a consistent series of oral and written warnings for all employees.
  2. Document each infraction and what you did regarding the unacceptable behavior.
  3. Follow-up to see if the behavior improves
  4. Follow your policies and procedures even if it results in terminating the employee.  But make sure you have a documented history of warnings and consequences to diminish likelihood of discriminatory claims and/or actions,
  5. Above all else, treat all employees in the same manner.
