Signed EE "Final Warning" - changed by.... HR?
A general question. I am a Supervisor. In December, with HR present, I gave an employee a final warning for tardiness. The employee signed it, as did I in the presence of HR.
I've recently hired a new Supervisor to oversee the department in which this particular employee works. The employee was tardy this past week 2 times. The new Supervisor went to HR to ask the best manner in which to proceed with the pre-determined and documented "next steps", which would be termination. HR took the signed "Final Warning" crossed out the words "Final Warning" and wrote "Written Notice Only" and then signed it with her name and date.
What recourse do I, as the original Supervisor which wrote the "Final Notice" have?
Many thanks in advance.
