Q. What is?
A. Progressive discipline is disciplinary action taken by an employer that becomes increasingly severe for subsequent offenses. For example, in a typical progressive discipline policy, the employer would give an oral warning for a first offense, a written warning for a second offense and would terminate employment for a third offense.
If adopting a progressive discipline policy, the employer should include in the policy a statement that it does not change the at-will employment relationship between the employer and the employee. Moreover, in the policy, the employer should expressly reserve the right to skip any step within the policy and, within its sole discretion, proceed directly to termination of employment.
