Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about writing up negligence:
Can an employer write up an employee for a negligence injury? If so, how would you word it?

Dear Ready to Write:
There is no law about sanctioning an employee for an injury they received as the result of negligence, but there are plenty of reasons to approach it in a different way. Talk to your HR section or even an attorney about the matter, to receive the most accurate advice about it, given the circumstances. At the very least, make sure everyone in the management chain above you has given their opinion and supports the final decision.
