Progressive Discipline

The progressive discipline process is designed to be constructive and corrective and to promote employee success. It gives employees the information necessary to understand what aspect of work performance, attendance and/or behavior is unacceptable, identifies the improvements that are expected and provides the opportunity for employees to demonstrate the expected improvements.

The goal is to improve performance, attendance or behavior of employees and to assist employees in taking ownership of their performance, attendance or behavior.

It is the responsibility of the employee to adhere to the expectations outlined by the supervisor and by the university. It is recommended that all employees be provided an opportunity to go through the progressive discipline process; however, there may be circumstances that warrant immediate termination.

In addition, there is no required number of instances that a supervisor must warn or reprimand an employee before termination is warranted.

For the complete policy on progressive discipline, please see the Employee Handbook, page 80, section 8.4.
