Progressive Discipline Process

When an employee's performance or behavior is unsatisfactory, a progressive process for corrective action is strongly advised. The steps involved in the process may vary depending on the nature of the situation and can include verbal discussion, written warning, suspension without pay, and/or termination.

It is recommended that department management documents all steps of the corrective discipline process as they occur. As appropriate, this should include notice of potential further corrective action if modification of performance and/or behavior does not occur promptly.

Managers are required to coordinate with their designated Human Resources Business Partner (HRBP) to review and provide input on all written notices PRIOR to delivering notice to the employee. Please use the Disciplinary Action Form moving forward. If there are specific performance concerns that cannot be addressed in the Disciplinary Action Form, contact your HRBP.
