write ups for a text

I already know that on my part sending the text and
it going to the wrong person was unprofessional…that
being said I have nevercbeem legitimately written up
and I was wondering how I can be written up for
what was termed as talking bad about the boss with
another employee..gossiping. I am aware that others
have not been written up for more serious infractions
such as not calling in when not coming to work…any
coments

In an "at will" employment relationship, a company can set the conditions of work much as it sees fit. This includes how to discipline an employee. This is true unless this action violates the terms of an employment contract or union agreement. Also, it must not constitute some form of legally actionable discrimination; in other words you cannot receive differing treatment based on your race, religion, disability, age (over 40), etc. Otherwise not all employees need be treated the same or even fairly.
