Disciplinary explained

Disciplinary procedures are a set way for an employer to deal with disciplinary issues. For example, a manager may be concerned about an employee's work, their general conduct or an unauthorised absence.

Disciplinary procedures are 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. If disciplinary rules and procedures are written correctly and used effectively, not only should the work place be a happier working environment but will minimise the potential of being taken to an Employment Tribunal.
