Is it my job to give an employer a final warning?

I have 4 people working under me. My supervisor, who is a director, wants me to give one of my employers a final warning. I disagree with his decision, because that employer has never received an oral warning. My employer has not finished a lots of paperwork but caught up very fast when I asked her today.

You need to read company policy, but most I have worked for are able (and willing) to give first and final warnings for major work rule violations. Some will even terminate without a first and final if the infraction is bad enough. If you are truly a supervisor and in charge of those 4 people then you are responsible... More

Yes it is. You are this person's direct supervisor. Considering this person's behavior (catching up really fast) he/she has been warned already, probably by your supervisor. I suggest you give the final warning as mentioned by your boss.
