Disciplinary procedures enable you to ensure that employees keep to the rules. More importantly, they enable you, as an employer, to ensure that all breaches of the rules are dealt with fairly and consistently.
If disciplinary rules and procedures are written correctly and used effectively, not only should the work place be a happier working environment but also, the business owner will minimise the potential of being taken to an Employment Tribunal.
Disciplinary procedures should be seen as an aid to effective management, to be used primarily as a means of modifying people’s behaviour in line with the organisation’s aims – not just as a mechanism for imposing sanctions.

Concern over conduct letter template
You would normally issue this letter to record a concern that you have over something that the employee has done for the first time, that if happens again may warrant disciplinary action.
An informal verbal warning is often all you need to improve an employee’s conduct or performance.
File note form template
The purpose of a file note is for a line manager to keep a record of a discussion with an employee, where the employee has displayed poor performance, a questionalble attitude, or has committed misconduct.
The form also allows for subsequent agreed actions/targets or objectives to be recorded.
