danlan2 Should IV be done before V and VI?
Slothrop Why aren't III and IV done also, even if one needs to do V and VI?
Charlie "may have violated" does not necessarily mean the employee has violated the standards. Therefore you cannot warn the employee. You need to investigate first. IV should not be chosen.

III: you cannot report anything to your boss. You should try to resolve the issue yourself as it's your responsibility.
