Labor law categorically prohibits employers from imposing fines and other financial penalties for violating work discipline by employees.
The employer has instead the right to apply to the employee the following disciplinary sanctions for violation of work discipline:
- a warning;
- harsh reprimand;
- dismissal (in cases provided by law, e.g., in case of repeated violation, during a year, of work obligations, if the employee has previously been disciplined or in case of absence without reason from work for 4 consecutive hours during the working day).
Recommendation: When applying the disciplinary sanction, take into account the seriousness of the disciplinary violation committed.
