Any disciplinary procedure should ensure the fair treatment of all employees and to promote improvement in performance by encouraging employees to accept responsibility for their own actions in the workplace. The process should allow for re-education as well as ensuring that the facts to support any further actions are gathered and considered. It should also follow the conditions set out in the various State and Federal Acts/Awards and ensure that sufficient evidence is gathered for presentation to any Industrial and/or Civil Court if necessary.
