    Got a letter from the company that I will receive a 3 day suspension (something I will not get into for the reason why, and welcome the time off anyway ). How long does the company have to get this started/completed in ( i.e. a month, two months, a year)? Also does the company need to tell me in a day advanced or I just walk in for normal start time and they say go home?

    "Something I will not get into for the reason why and welcome the time off anyway" tells me that you knew the suspension was coming. Enjoy your unpaid time off.

    Did you file a grievance on this discipline? All of that should have been explained to you during that process.

    Not sure there is a limit of time; my center manager waived my one day suspension after (he says) corp made him give it

    No 1st you file on the letter. Then you wait a week -2 tops. Then file again on them harrassing you with the 1st letter. It will likely be on a Tues or wed. Always seems those are the days people are processed in and out. With punishment. Just learn from your mistake. Don't do it again.

    We HAD a driver get a warning ltr for too many attendance infractions.

    Then he took off again and they scheduled him for a hearing.

    The day of the hearing he called off.
    I still laugh about that.

    A suspension is a punishment?

    I was suspended once for 2 days-- Wed and Thurs. The center manager called me at home Tuesday evening and asked if it would be ok with me if I was suspended Thurs and Fri instead because he was really short handed Wed. I opted for the 4 day weekend. Nothing like a 4 day weekend punishment.
