Employee Discipline Guidelines

As a supervisor before taking actions, ask yourself these questions -

1.    Have rules / policies / procedures / standards been carefully communicated to all employees? Are they published in your employee hand book? On prominent bulletin boards, in your labour agreements?

2.    Have you gotten the facts before proceeding?

3.    Have you given prior verbal / written warning? Can you prove these by dates / times / actions.

4.    Have you been consistent in the enforcement of your rules?

5.    Are such similar rules consistently enforced throughout your organization?

6.    Are there any mitigating / special circumstances involved?
