Great Q. You need documentation showing:

  1. You had a clear rule
  2. You communicated the rule to the employee and he knew about it
  3. The employee violated the rule
  4. Other employees have been fired for the same violation–or other documentation showing that you consistently enforced the rule and weren’t just singling out this guy
  5. Other prior progressive disciplinary actions, if any, taken against the employee for previous violations, e.g., warning letters, suspension notices, etc.

Hope that helps and sorry I took so long to reply. Glenn
