Explanation

You know that the employee is young and makes mistakes. Verdant means either “green and lush” (like a forest), or “new and inexperienced” (the use of “green” as a metaphor, as in, “She’s still green at her job.”) Since the mistake was so expensive, it makes sense that the employee would be castigated, or severely criticized. (He wouldn’t be deposed — that word is for kings, dictators, etc., forced out of power.)

Verdant, castigated.
