Employee Discipline Checklist

The Employee Discipline Checklist is a helpful tool for employers to use when addressing employee misconduct. It allows employers to document and address employee behavior in an organized, step-by-step manner. The checklist includes steps to take in order to appropriately address the employee's conduct, including discussing the incident with the employee, issuing a written warning, and if necessary, taking disciplinary action. This helps ensure that employers are treating all employees fairly and in accordance with the law. The checklist also provides guidance on how to document the disciplinary process and allows employers to keep a record of the incident for future reference.
