Employee Discipline: Aids for Formulating, Administering, and Documenting

Benefits: No matter how careful you are when you hire new employees, chances are that, at some point, you will have to respond to unacceptable types of conduct on the job. The attached file contains six documents designed to help you in that sometimes uncomfortable situation.

The first document is a sample progressive discipline policy that lists specific offenses — and penalties — according to seriousness. The second is a checklist of steps to take when you have to confront and discipline an employee. The third is a checklist of all the information you need to include in documenting a discipline session. The fourth document is a sample progressive discipline policy that you can edit to suit your needs. The fifth and sixth documents are sample forms to use in the administration of your progressive discipline policy when giving verbal and written warnings. Good recordkeeping is vital to establishing that you have fairly administered your policies and not unfairly singled out any group or individual. It also helps you track an employee's progress, or lack of it, in response to your efforts.
