Legal Question in Employment Law in California

verbal vs written warnings

I was given a letter of reprimand that I feel is unjustified. I am being accused of breaking confidentiality, by taking things discussed in a public board meetingand sharing them with my fellow employees, among other things that I will not get into.

I will be filing a respnse, but there are a few discrepancies with the reprimand.

How can I find out the do's and dont's and my legal rights and what I can do about this. I have been sick tomy stomach, very emotional and nervous as a result of these false accusations.

There are no laws that address your question. It is a matter of common sense. Respond in a professional, factual manner, point by point, indicating the inaccuracies of the reprimand. The company has the final say in the outcome, whether you agree with it or not.

If the reprimand may lead to termination it may be helpful to consult with an attorney to prepare your response.
