Former employee claimed his discharge violated company policy requiring that only appropriate discipline be issued for a workplace policy infraction. Employee argued his second violation of company safety policy did not warrant employment discharge but only a work suspension. In dismissing the employee’s claim, the court determined that employer company had the right and discretion under its discipline policy to fire employee for second safety violation, and discharge was an appropriate disciplinary measure for employee’s policy violation.
