|ETSU practices progressive discipline beginning with supervisory counseling. The supervisory counseling tools of Informal Discussion sessions and Verbal Warnings are tools to problem-solve and improve performance, and are not used to punish the employee. In the event that disciplinary action must be taken against an employee for misconduct or poor performance, the University provides these Progressive Disciplinary Procedures to ensure prompt, consistent and fair treatment of all employees.|
Before taking any action, supervisors should read PPP-70, and/or contact Employee Relations for a consultation.
