Disciplinary Action
The Company has established policies that apply to all employees. An employee who commits infractions of the Company’s policies or engages in other conduct considered by the Company to be improper and/ or not in the best interest of the Company is subject to any of the following forms of discipline, up to and including immediate termination:
~Verbal warning (with a written notation of that warning placed in the employee’s file)
~Written warning (with a copy placed in employee’s file)
~Suspension and/ or termination (with a copy of the violation that resulted in the suspension or termination including reference to any previous verbal or written warnings given to be placed in the employee’s file)

While progressive discipline may be used, termination is always possible at the election of the Company at any time with or without reason.

Termination & Employment At-Will
Unfortunately, conditions may arise which will lead either an employee or the Company to terminate the employee’s employment. The employee’s employment at the Company, is “at-will”; that is, the employee of the Company may terminate the employee’s employment at any time with or without reason, and with or without notice. Termination of employment is a serious matter, which normally but not always occurs after corrective measures have failed.

Appeals may be made to the Human Resources Department at the Head Office. Employees will be paid their final pay in accordance with state law. Any outstanding employee charges must be settled in full prior to the last day of work. Terminated employees must return Company-owned property.
