    Hi,
    I work in DC for a large chain. I was recently written up (unjustly IMO) and was asked to sign paperwork.
    My questions are:
    Am I entitled to a copy of the write up?
    and
    Is there a law in place in DC entitling me to contest the write-up or is this based on Company Policy only.

    Many thanks in advance.

    The District of Columbia has no laws entitling you to a copy of the write up or guaranteeing you the right to contest it. Both are a matter of company policy.

    Agree though the rules are a little different for DC government employees which doesn't seem to apply here.
