Disciplinary Procedure

A disciplinary procedure is a formal course of action for how an employer can deal with an employee's unacceptable, poor or improper behaviour and/or conduct.

This document can be used by employers to create a disciplinary procedure that they shall implement when engaging disciplinary action against employees.

This procedure can be tailored so that it provides for the specific needs and demands required by the employer.

How to use this document

This procedure should be followed by an employer were they wish to formally discipline an employee for their poor conduct or performance. It should be signed by the employer or by a person the employer has instructed to carry out the disciplinary process, such as a Human Resources employee. The employer should follow this procedure as consistently as possible to ensure that all employees are being treated fairly.

This procedure should be made available to all employees so that it is transparent and they are aware of their rights and obligations under the procedure. Where this procedure shall form a section of an employee's contract with the employer, this should be stated within the text of the document and it is prudent to have the employee sign a declaration stating that they have received a copy of the procedure which they have read and understood.

When initiating a disciplinary process with an employee, an employer should make sure to follow the Acas Code of Practice on disciplinary and grievance procedures at all times.
