hi there, he has given required notice and i told him the same day he couldnt have it but what can i do if he does not turn up for work that particular week?
sorry, just so i am clear if he does not show up are you saying it could be a sackable offence?
ok thats fine we have had other problems with this employee very minor things but on a regular basis and as yet no warnings we are normally easy going but this has upset us as its a total disriguard of our requests would you say it is advisable to issue a warning for previous issues and also for refusing to come in that week?
how does that work? am i right in that we have to issue a verbal warning and then two written warnings
