The company is letting all the managers know the follow ups are due. I thought any discipline or HR issues should only go up to that employee’s chain of management.

Rita Risser Chai replies:

This is legal and may even be a good practice. Companies should treat employees consistently in giving discipline. Although, legally, only decision-makers have to be consistent with their employees, the more consistency there is within the organization, the better employee morale will be. Of course, the managers should be cautioned to keep the information confidential and not reveal it to anyone else.
