I have not heard of a disciplinary outcome being increased from a warning to a dismissal just because the employee had asked for a copy of the warning. Usually, this would only happen If the person appeals the outcome and the employer then increases the penalty. However, in this case this was not even the case and without any plausible justification increased the outcome of the disciplinary.
There is case law which confirms that a disciplinary outcome should not be increased unless there is a contractual right to do so and any new evidence that has come out must be dealt with through a new disciplinary process.
