Taking Disciplinary Action
Workers should always be given the opportunity to change their behaviour, but more serious cases may require discipline. Disciplinary action may be considered when:
- the complaint is about sexual or physical assault
- the complaint is confirmed by witnesses
- the person being complained about has been warned or disciplined before for similar behaviour.
Discipline may involve:
- transfer, suspension or probation
Staff may also be required to apologise.
Disciplinary action needs to be fair and take all the circumstances into account.
