Discipline can be for repeated acts of separate types of misconduct and can increase progressively even if not for the exact same thing. Conduct cases are those where an employee fails to comply with work rules, policies, and procedures and can include issues such as attendance, dishonesty, disrespect, and proper use of County time. This can be a single instance or repeated incidents. When proposing a discipline for acts of misconduct the totality of the situation should be considered along with relevant prior discipline. When conduct cases arise you should consult with Employee Relations to get advice on how to best handle your specific situation.
