Is the 'three warning' rule an urban myth?

Many employees still believe that they're entitled to three warnings before being terminated. Is there any truth behind this commonly held belief?

    The 3 strike approach is a product a disciplinary action policy designed by data rationalists and policy police. The answer is to change the system to one of 'behavioural correction' where, just as it is with your drivers licence, points are earned and accumulated over time according to the particular behaviour. The rate of accumulation of points over time determines the action. Just like it does with your driver's licence. I have installed this method in a number of organisations and it has been unsuccessfully challenged in the Fair Work Commission
