You’ve taken positive steps to help your employee turn a performance problem around, but the problem still persists. What do you do next? At this point, you must proceed cautiously but firmly and use a progressive approach to discipline. In progressive discipline, employees are subjected to increasingly severe penalties over time if performance doesn’t improve. This approach satisfies the demands of due process, involves the employee in resolving the problem, and records the employer’s efforts to assist the employee. Documenting each stage of formal disciplinary action ensures that the employee understands future consequences if problem issues aren’t improved.
This course establishes when it’s appropriate to begin progressive discipline with an employee. It also demonstrates how to progress through the verbal and written warnings of the process, with guidelines for each stage.
