Answer:

Dear Late:

No, it is not true. Seven minutes late is just that…late! You are considered tardy and coming in late is a bad habit. You were hired to work from A time to Z time not “around there somewhere.” There is no law regarding tardiness. However, you can be terminated for excessive tardiness. Some companies have a policy in their employee handbook that goes into detail on this subject. For example, three times a month is considered excessive with some companies.
