HR question

Can a person be written up for doing something but there is no written company policy stating that its prohibited?

I would assume so—but I would think there would be a warning first and then if they did it again, a formal write up.
Unless it was something very obviously wrong or inappropriate.

In my company,they use generic catch-phrase "insubordination" when it doesn't come directly from policy and person is being written up.

This. I would imagine there is some vague catchall phrase that almost anything could be found to be a violation of company policy

Re: HR question

Yes, absolutely. There is no way that a policy can outline every single thing a person can do wrong, so they are usually written generally.

HR question

I work for the state and where I am, the answer is no. If people even think their boss may give corrective feedback they are in the union office and ask for a union rep.. it’s like people think they are being investigated for a crime and “lawyer up” the second their boss asks to meet with them, meanwhile, it could be to give you positive feedback... so in my world no. I came from non profit prior and originally when I started, yes I felt like people could be written up, but by the time I left, HR changed and bosses had to tread more lightly than previous years

Re: HR question

A company can do whatever it wants. There is no possible way to write policies covering every single possible infraction. So within reason, yes, a company can write a person up for just about anything it wants to.
