The arbitrator`s solution was to restore Olson`s agreement and condition compliance with a new last-chance agreement. Under the new agreement signed by Olson, Olson was required to undergo training to “address his deficiencies and performance problems,” provided that a recurrence of a similar fault within three years of his reinstatement was a cause of his resignation. The arbitrator later clarified his opinion to provide that if Olson “in the event of misconduct or performance issues, as stated in this agreement, this behaviour is sufficient only reason for the village to terminate Olson`s employment. If Olson or foP challenge the termination of Olson`s hiring, the only question a court of arbitration must decide is whether Olson participated in the conduct. If there has been an overweight evidence that Olson was involved in the alleged conduct, the sanction for this behaviour is the end.” In order to minimize the chances of obtaining further arbitrations and possible misunderstandings, this type of agreement is usually very short. This is often a general declaration of consent of a worker for committing a serious violation of the policy. It follows its signature, which is being developed to improve their compliance with policies in the area indicated. The offence, which led specifically to the development of the agreement, is described in detail, but the overview of most forms is comparable to that of a written reminder for most entry-level jobs. Police officer Tom Olson of Fox Lake, Illinois, came to his last contract in a different way. Olson was first fired in 2013 from the Village for a large number of misdemeanors, including refusing to complete orders, failing to properly and correctly complete reports, and harassing a village resident.
At the time, Olson was under a last-chance agreement in 2007, which stemmed from his behaviour during a traffic stop. Employers generally strive to retain current employees because an experienced employee can add value to a business and because the high costs associated with recruiting and training new employees are attributable.
