You don't have to go through stepped disciplinary actions if your employee manual doesn't say you have a stepped program. Makes it easier on you if you don't. All to often the stock manuals out there that one might emulate uses a stepped program. Make your life easier and just say xxx infractions may be the cause of disciplinary action up to termination at the disccretion of the company.

And yes, document everything. It's a pain, but document it.

Thanks for all the replys. I ended up firing him in the morning when I pulled up and he was sitting down while the others were all working. He didn't take it badly at all. I think he wanted to get fired so he could collect UI.

I don't have an policy manual right now, but I think I'll work on one for next year. For those of you that have manuals, how did existing employees feel about having to agree in writing to all your rules?

People like structure. It don't think it's a problem, particularly when you explain how it will benefit them.
