A. Absolutely. By the time they are ready to let someone go…then they want to document! Ha! I see others are saying the same thing…very interesting.

A. Managers and supervisors who want severe discipline implemented towards an employee when they are finally fed up with the behavior, and then knowing they don’t have the proper documentation of previous discussions or incidents, they’ll blame HR in frustration when they have to start at square one rather than do what they want done.

B – Abuse of intermittent FMLA is our biggest issue, especially when the serious health condition is “migraines”.

A definitely – Supervisors who promise that they have all of their paperwork in order but can’t produce it when asked.

Supervisors who forget – or only create paperwork when feed-up- to document conversations with employees who aren’t meeting expectations creates a litany of problems. The largest one that I continually face is that the supervisor (and thus the company) may be accused of discrimination later.
