Notations should be made in the employee’s file recording any offense committed using the Disciplinary Notice Template. Management reserves the right to terminate or discipline any employee as considered necessary in individual circumstances. This misconduct can occur simultaneously and then be written up individually or grouped together on one report. The disciplinary action taken is a result of the severity of the offense.
The first step for any misconduct is to communicate the poor performance to the employee. The employee should communicate how they will resolve the issue. A notation should be made in the employee’s personnel file using DEV106-1 DISCIPLINARY NOTICE. The notice should be kept for a period of no more than one year. The notation should include:
Date of verbal warning
Description of expected performance
Verbal warnings may be removed from the personnel file after 90 days if the problem does not arise again. If the situation continues, then the employee should be given a written warning.
