An adjudicator has upheld the termination of a FedEx employee for misrepresenting his hours worked.

Wayne Skinner was an admin clerk for FedEx in Mississauga, Ont. He performed customer service functions.

Skinner was hired in 2005. Between November 2009 and February 2012, Skinner received verbal counseling once, written counseling three times and seven written warnings for “habitual tardiness.” These followed FedEx’s disciplinary policy of providing verbal warnings, written warnings, or termination for misconduct.
