    What to do if the employee is late on the first day of joining office?

    I am a manager in a private company. Recently there was a situation when one of the fresher recruited was late on the joining date of office. I had said him that necessary action will be taken against him. What action should I take against him keeping in mind he is a fresher?

    Dear Aspirant,

    It is some time possible to reach office late due to unavoidable reason.Since it is the first day of the fresher,he came late to the office for which there may be some unavoidable reason.Since the place is not well known to him,he may not have proper lodging & boarding facility to get ready in time.Also there may be traffic problem.So being the first day,he may be execused,giving him a oral warning not to come late to office in time.

    If he continues coming late,he must be given in writing some strict instructions to reach office in time & otherwise be ready to face the discipilinary action.

    Hope he will not come late in office.

    Thanks & good luck.

    Hi aspirant

    I can understand the cause of your anger with the fresher as he got late on the first day itself showing his irresponsibility and lack of seriousness. But I think it will be too harsh on him if you give him a punishment just when he has started . This will bring his morale down and he will not be able to work whole heartedly. Of course you cannot leave him unpunished also as then he might take undue advantage of you.

    So what you should do is call him to your office and give him a little lecture which he will never forget. Tell him that you are really very angry with him for coming late to office the very first day. But as he is new , you are willing to give him another chance. You expect that he will never repeat this mistake again or otherwise you will be forced to punish him. You hope that he has got your point and thus will never do this again.

    I am sure this will be a good lesson for your employee and he will dare not disobey your order. Good luck

    Hello,

    I agree to your point,that any employee must be punctual about office timings specially on his first day.How come this guy is so casual about it? Also this incident has effected his image on the point that he is not serious regarding the office schedules and office timings.So he is worthy of getting the warning that you have been given him.Now wait some some and see for a few more days.If he comes on time,then well and good.Otherwise penalise him with a fine of Rs.300 or deduct a day from his casual leaves that he is entitled to get from the office.Once he is penalised,he will not repeat it again.

    Dear sir, you are a manager of pvt. farm very nice you have written statement in spite of reminder one of the freshers' came at your office for joining purpose at late, you are thinking to take action against him, and also thinking he is fresher then what kind of action you will take.

    Well you must consider this as accident due to some odd reasons that fresher came in office at late.One thing sir, accident is accident it does not care first day or last day similar case may happen at your life also.You ask him to give reason of his late, then you welcome him to join beside intimate him about the consequences of late and penalty if there is any.After all he is a civilized person I think if he has the wish to do job then he is bound to be punctual.

    Thank you,

    Hello,
    This is a common problem in all offices and with many freshers.I know you and your friends are not late.
    But all peoples are not same.he can be some unwilling problems.
    1-New to city,don't know about traffic,route,and morning delay in road.
    2-First day change in schedule can make this problem.
    just warn him verbally,and warn he will be punished for next delay.

    Dear Friend, an employee late on the first day and the employee late on the last day is just the same. but before you jump into conclusions, you need to first keep in mind certain things. Every company or organisation has its own standing orders or service rules wherein the rules and regulations and the punishments for violation of the same has been mentioned clearly. now the question is, was the concern employee informed about these standing orders or service rules and the punishments for the misconducts which included late coming? if no, then actually I feel that you cannot take any action. having said that, you might have told him the time on which he/she had to arrive at office and that might be enough to punish the employee. Generally, if the misconduct is not of a grave character and if it is done for the first time and in your case it's just a fresher, where you can just give him a written warning and tell him/her not to repeat the same. if the same thing continues then you can think of punishing him by withholding his salary, bonus or deducting the salary for the hour which he/she is late. all this should be done only after the concerned employee has been given a chance to explain himself first. generally in a manufacturing sector what they do is, they give a show - cause notice, where the employee has to explain why action should not be taken against him. you can do the same and since he is a fresher and it was on the first day, I suggest you just let him go with just a warning....regards Sydney...

    Dear Friend
    Itís really good to see that a young girl like is interested in modelling. But to answer your question I strongly feel that freelance modelling for a young girl of your age is a strict no.

    It does not mean that I am putting some restrictions on you coz you are a girl. But itís just that there are lot of bad things happening to girls in our country today that I feel that you need to think hundred times before you think of joining a freelance modelling profession.
    I feel that you should only work with people you know and are known for their work in the field of modelling. Even if you decide to join a freelance modelling agency, please try to find out about them. Also talk to your parents about it, coz there is no other person in this world who can understand you better than they do.
    Hope you become a very successful model one.
    Good luck...
    Regards
    Sydney

    Since it was the first day, you should not take any action.
    You just need to give him verbal warning
    After this you need to see his puntuality towards work and coming to the office.
    If he is doing his work and coming to office on time, no action should be taken.
    If you take some strict action against a fresher, than he feel demotivated.
    Just a verbal warning will do

    Re: What to do if the employee is late on the first day of joining office?

    hello sir, its very sad and bad to hear that a fresher on joining date is late to office i think its not really good... but you should ask him the reason for his late and if he has reason for it then look into the statement which he makes,then you can give him moral lessons and lecture him about the importance of being punctual.. this is perfect time to teach him the set of rules of company and warn him with a authority that he will be fired if he comes late again..
    i cannot fully comment about the mindset of behaviour but he lacks discipline and manners these two things should be carefully examined by you sir.. as he is a fresher you should not take any action as you don't know his talent and how is his performance its too early tooo early to take action wait for some time check his performance and quality of work culture he has... who knows he may turn out good and performer for the company??? thank you sir

    Re: What to do if the employee is late on the first day of joining office?

    Hi friends..,

    Many employees first day of joining office is late because they very happy to join in the company and he was go to temple and full enjoy the happiness.
    So most of the employees on the first day joining the office careless of the work , he focus to the only personal happiness.
    I think the employees must follow the time punctuality.
    You can ask the reasons of late coming to the office.
    Your employee reasons is genuine you can easily take them and your employee reasons face otherwise you can strictly waning them, don't repeat again.

    So you must tell the time importance to your employees.
    Your problem is solved .

    Thanks!!!

    GOOD LUCK................

    Hi
    Sir you being the manager of the institute, you should forgive that employee with a serious warning. Because first timer can always be neglected. But don't be too light and include in your warning that if the same thing occurs again, then you won't be getting that present day's pay. Strict rules must be followed..

    Hello Sir.

    As a fresher he should come to officer early for his first day. The mistake is done by him. As a Manager you have the authority to take any action on him.
    But sir, as he is a fresher you should excuse him for one time, and tell him not to come to office late next time.
    He may be late for the office due to some his own reasons like he perfectly dont no the location of Office, He may be don't no which bus will go to the office,
    he may be went to temple as he was going to first day office.
    Sir, the reasons may be more but as he was a fresher and first day to office you can excuse him.
    If he repeats regularly then you can take action on him according to your wish.

    Thank you...

    Hello
    This is not good to be late on the first day of joining.
    This will leave a negetive remark on the joinee.
    But if a joinee is late on the first day then you can discuss the reason of being late.
    If the reason is valid then you can leave him with a warning an ask them not to repeat it.
    If this continues for a long time then you can take some actions like you can ask them to apply leave.
    Or you can also deduct the day's salary.
    Thank you

    Dear Friend,

    Being a Manger of your company its your duty no doubt to maintain or manage the rules and regulation for proper working of Company. In case if any fresher is reporting Late its your duty to warn him/her by yourself or by any means. Freshers might not be knowing the importance of reporting on right time. So warn the concerned person only once or twice.

    In case the fresher employee is reporting late everyday or frequently then you should take slight strict action against him/her by penalizing the person in Pay outs/ Salary.
    Further if the case is not under control after warning several times then its your duty to suspend/ Fire that person not only because of that person fault but due to the bad impression that person is showing to other employees also. So for the sake of Company and employees you need to take action accordingly as per the requirement/ stage.
