Employee Disciplinary Form

At ZPC, we receive calls everyday from unhappy former employees who question:

  • Can I sue my employer for …. [a hundred reasons….]
  • Am I eligible for unemployment compensation?
  • Can I get my trailing sales commissions?
  • My employer is withholding my final paycheck.  Help me please

We advise our clients on the best practices to prevent lawsuits that include real time documentation of employment events  – using forms like the Counseling Form attached and found below.
