Disciplinary procedures are a set way for an employer to deal with disciplinary issues. They should include a disciplinary hearing where you’re given a chance to explain your side of the story. There should also be a chance to appeal any disciplinary action your employer decides to take. The disciplinary policy is aimed at ensuring that issues of misconduct are managed and dealt with in a fair and consistent manner. The Trust promotes high standards of behaviour and conduct for all employees and takes appropriate corrective action where those standards are not met. Verbal warnings are one of the most common types of discipline at the workplace and are typically the first step in a progressive series of disciplinary measures. In most small businesses, supervisors of the employee – regardless of that employee’s status – issue verbal warnings. The aims of the disciplinary procedure are to provide a framework within which managers can work with employees to maintain satisfactory standards of conduct and to encourage improvement when necessary. This course covers the aims of the disciplinary procedure, penalties including investigations, allegations and suspensions, procedures for carrying out hearings, and appeals.
