    Saad,

    Let’s use the example of employees working on weekends, which would generally be considered undesirable by the employees.

    Negative reinforcement would be offering that if the department meets certain productivity goals by the end of the week, that they do not need to work over the weekend. Therefore, the unpleasant condition, working over the weekend, is removed.

    Punishment would be telling employees that if they don’t meet certain productivity goals during the week, that it will be mandatory that they work over the weekend until they complete their goals. Therefore, the employees are being punished for lower productivity.

    Extinction would be where the productivity of the employees during the week and their working over the weekend is simply ignored, and the employees are neither praised for getting their work done during the week or for putting in extra time over the weekend, nor are they punished for not getting all of their work done during the week.

    Saad,

    The literal definition of extinct is “no longer in existence.” In this context, it means neither reward nor punishment, in other words, the lack of any kind of reinforcement.

    Saad,

    Punishment would be anything that is negative to the employee. Deducting pay, losing vacation time, not receiving a bonus, receiving a written warning that could lead to firing if the behavior is repeated, etc.

    Saad,

    Simply talking to the employee would not be considered punishment or negative reinforcement; there must be something given or taken away.

    Saad,

    As I said in my previous reply, it is neither. Please re-read the original definitions of each of the terms in question. Simply talking to the employee is not any sort of punishment or behavior correction, there must be something either given as an incentive or taken away.
