He was sick last week. He did not call off on Thursday, however he called off on Friday to the Sick Mail box that is set up for our employees. His immediate supervisor is suspending him because he says he did not call him personally. There is no policy in house that says a supervisor must contact him personally. Further, other supervisors call in to the Sick Mailbox when out. This employee is responsible for 2 shifts and therefore works in excess of 8 hours per day but is not paid any overtime and not required to punch the time clock. This situation gets worse. I am his wife and also the director of HR for this company. I was not consulted in the discipline for obvious reasons. This was a form of punishment to help prevent him from not calling in when sick.
If you need any further info, please ask. Thanks.
