No...read company policy. Being a supervisor and having written up at least 100 people myself I will tell you that being written up or having points does not mean that you are going to get fired. Honestly I will tell you that it's all about people and popularity. If you have skills you can get away with almost anything. Some hints and tricks for your hard-to-deal with boss:
1. Don't take any crap without speaking up/watch what
you say- If you have problems, be sure to express
them but tactfully, and break the issues down to the
2. Don't get cornered- If the supervisor tries to take you into a corner to discipline you say you want a witness present, that is your legal right. If they are going to write you up ask them what policy you broke and have them explain it to you. If they cannot explain what policy you have broke ask them if they are going to write you up. If there is no reason and no policy you broke, no write-up ask this question..supervisor's love it "are you trying to single me out" They will ususally leave you alone after that question because there is no real good answers for that one. If they answer that one wrong and you have witnesses you could get the supervisor fired!!!!
3. Do not sign anything you do not agree with-A lot of superviors or H.R. managers will tell you that you have to sign something on a write-up. If it's accurate...you are in bad shape, shut up and take your medicine!!!! If it is wrong, then raise hell. If the supervisor does not have a leg to stand on, and cannot prove what his charges do not sign it, and if you are threatened with termination, take it to the top and tell everyone that you will draw unemployment if fired because they are wrong!!!!
If you do not feel like battling but just spiteful, you can also do a couple of things, sign on the back and write the statement below "My signature is only an acknowledgement that I have reviewed the aforementioned material, and does not represent my agreement with any of the mentioned statements"
