Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about a warning.
Can I get a formal verbal for being 5 minutes late, first offense?
Signed, Late Once
Dear Late Once:
I assume you were late and did get a warning. From your question I can’t tell how formal it was, but did you think it would be ignored? If you were the boss and an employee was late a second time and on the second time you warned her, could she have then said to her boss, “This is only the second time I’ve been late and you didn’t say anything the first time?”
