DISCIPLINARY POLICY All companies, no matter what their business, have certain rules of behavior, which must be observe to ensure a productive, safe operation. The Marek Companies are no exception. For the welfare of all of us who work together on a day-to-day basis, certain actions are serious enough to warrant disciplinary procedures. Therefore, infractions such as the ones listed below will result in such action, which may be in the form of a verbal warning, written warning, suspension, probation, or discharge depending on the facts of each case. The Company reserves the right to determine the level of disciplinary warranted by the situation and nothing herein shall require the Company to engage in progressive discipline before terminating an employee.
Since it would be impossible to write rules to cover every situation, the following list is not intended to be all-inclusive. It illustrates some of the types of conduct, which are unacceptable.
