Warner Attorney Comments on Zero Tolerance Policies for Employment Terminations

In a recent interview with Employee Terminations Law Bulletin, Warner Norcross Partner Lou Rabaut said that zero tolerance policies that prohibit threats of violence should not automatically require terminations. Rabaut told the Thomson Reuters publication that not all infractions are created equal. He recommends businesses reserve the zero-tolerance approach for “serious categories of wrongdoing,” or cautioned they could face a sharp decline in employee morale.
