503.03000 – Warning Letters, Reprimands, Evaluations

Reference to Education Code Section 44938 in a letter to a union activist is a veiled threat of impending dismissal and an adverse action. The code section sets out the statutory notice required prior to dismissal of employees for immoral or unprofessional conduct. The letter was placed in the personnel file of a union officer and could therefore have an adverse influence on the employee's promotional opportunities.
