503.03000 – Warning Letters, Reprimands, Evaluations

Unequivocal notice of the employer’s intent to impose discipline is an adverse action. Letter to employee stating that he was absent without leave and would be terminated unless he returned to work by a specific date was not adverse action because it did not indicate the employer had made a firm decision to terminate the employee. Notice for employee to vacate employer-provided residence was adverse action because it unequivocally stated employer’s intent to eliminate a term or condition of employment.
