A4800.10 Discipline

A first offense for certain misconduct which is of a serious nature could result in immediate dismissal without prior warning.   For other types of misconduct which are less serious, the employee’s director may, at his/her discretion, choose to utilize progressive disciplinary action to give the errant employee a chance to correct his/her behavior.   A manager may skip steps or repeat steps depending on the circumstances but the basic progressive disciplinary process includes:

  1. Verbal Warning
  2. Written Warning
  3. Final Written Warning
  4. Demotion or Dismissal

All disciplinary action should be in consultation with the Human Resources Director.  Actions resulting in demotion or dismissal would then be taken to the President and Board for approval.
