To have a business that runs smoothly and encourages employees to follow company rules, disciplinary actions are necessary. 

What are disciplinary actions? 

Disciplinary actions are the corrective actions taken by a company as a response to a rule violation, performance issue, or misconduct. An organization’s disciplinary actions may vary depending on the extent of the behavioral issue or concern. 

What is a disciplinary action policy? 

For organizations, a disciplinary action policy is a way of creating a standard set of procedures that the company can implement in case of any incident that goes against company rules. A disciplinary action policy needs to let employees know what the rules are and what will happen if these are not followed. 

Why is it important to have a disciplinary action policy?

It is beneficial for an organization to have a disciplinary action policy in place so that there is a structured set of guidelines and procedures to follow in the event of rule infractions. Standardizing these procedures also ensures that employees will be treated equally in case of a violation. Additionally, having a set disciplinary action policy can also protect companies from legal consequences in case of disputes or allegations of wrongful termination. 

Lastly, a policy can make employees aware of the consequences that can happen if they do not follow the regulations set by the company. In this way, violations can be prevented from happening in the first place. 

What must be included in a disciplinary action policy? 

Although each organization is unique and has different needs, their disciplinary action policies should have the following components: 

In developing a disciplinary action policy, the organization should ensure that the policy is consistent, clear, and rational.
