Sometimes problems arise in employment relationships. Therefore, it is important that your workers are informed about the disciplinary procedures.
You are required to have a written disciplinary procedure that as a minimum includes:
Appeal or revision
It is important that you explain the disciplinary procedure to your workers and that any deductions from wages as a disciplinary measure is prohibited.
You must keep records of any disciplinary action taken and securely store them for at least 24 months.
Use the 'Disciplinary Procedure Exemplar' resource that aligns with GRASP and NZ employment law.
Add the 'Disciplinary Procedure' to worker induction and training records
Add the 'Disciplinary Procedure' as an attachment to employment agreements
