It’s important to document disciplinary action with a consistent process, especially in the event of a legal dispute. Relying on the same process helps to ensure fair treatment for all employees.
When meeting about a serious disciplinary action with an employee, it’s a good idea to have a witness present. If the employee refuses to sign the warning notice or denies a discussion took place, the witness can confirm the proper communication occurred.
