2-406 EMPLOYEE NEGLIGENCE
18-AT-02798-BR – The claimant was warned for failure to complete a state-mandated task, costing the employer a large loss of funding. The Hearing Officer ruled that a subsequent decision to terminate an employee, for the same infraction they received previous discipline for, was not misconduct. The Board of Review finds no statute, policy or precedent case that says that. An employer is not obligated to give an employee a warning for the employee’s actions to amount to misconduct. The claimant’s failure to complete a critical task was a substantial breach of her job duties and a neglect of the duties required of her. Thus, the claimant was discharged for misconduct.
17-AT-03443-BR - Claimant was a 13-year employee and last worked as an Assembler. She accrued an excessive number of assembly errors in 2016 and was terminated for such. Claimant put forth significant effort at her position and performed at the required level on multiple occasions. The effort put forth by the claimant was sufficient to overcome a finding of neglect of duty. No misconduct found.
15-AT-6185 BR - Claimant received warnings for negligence and engaged in actions which were grossly negligent; misconduct.
