#HR Word: #Disciplinary #Procedure

05 Feb

​Disciplinary Procedure is  a comprehensive procedure written by an organization to ensure that the employees working there follow certain norms of discipline or code of conduct in their day to day operations.

 The written procedure results in transparent and uniform steps stating how the employees should behave and what would be the penalty for not following the disciplinary procedure. 

This helps the employer to take care of any issues emerging from employees’ performance which may prove to be costly, dangerous or illegal for a firm

As per the disciplinary procedure, disciplinary action is applied progressively i.e. if similar or related offences are repeated, it will result in more serious disciplinary actions.


Eg – In many companies, access to certain websites is blocked. An employee maybe penalized if he bends these rules. There are IT related disciplinary procedures to prevent an employee from accessing these websites.

Another example could be – In most of the companies, there are disciplinary procedures stating the implications of leaking confidential information
