The West Egg Group Corp. uses progressive discipline to address performance, conduct, and policy violation issues. Progressive discipline allows employees to correct any issues or concerns and reduces the need for the termination of employment.
The West Egg Group Corp. strives to work with employees regarding any issues in the workplace but also needs to hold employees to a high standard of performance and conduct. Therefore, a progressive, multi-step disciplinary process has been implemented.
In the event that an employee of The West Egg Group violates company policy or exhibits problematic behaviour, a system of progressive discipline shall be utilized.
Progressive Discipline can be issued on either: attendance, conduct, uniform discrepancies, damage claims, client complaints, not following SOP guidelines or performance concerns.
Employees will be given four (4) opportunities to correct the unwanted behaviour, unless the behaviour or concern is one of a severe nature, in which case, progressive discipline can be accelerated to match the violation. All stages will be documented and shared with the employee in writing.
Typically, progressive discipline will progress through the following stages:
With each violation or apparent problem, the employee will be provided with a written document to:
(1) alert them to the problem, provide a reiteration of the correct company policy regarding the violation;
(2) advise them of the consequences associated with further infractions;
(3) provide a suggestion towards a method of improvement.
All formal warnings will be kept on file for a period of twenty-four (24) months. If no further discipline happens within the time period, the warning will become inactive. If further offences relating to the issue have taken place, the warning will be attached to the next set of progressive disciplinary actions.
Degrees of discipline shall be used in relation to the problem at hand. As the situation dictates, based on the past performances of the employee, and the seriousness of the violation, Gatsby Valet Inc. reserves the right to skip the four-step disciplinary process and move straight to termination where necessary.
All violations or alleged violations will be properly investigated and documented by a Manager, and/or Human Resources. All formal measures that have been taken within the progressive discipline process will be documented and kept in the employee’s personnel file.
After the final written warning, an employee may be suspended and/or put on review.
The final stage of progressive discipline is the termination of employment. Termination of employment with Gatsby Valet Inc. may occur following an employee committing multiple violations of company policy after the logical steps for progressive disciplinary action have been taken or immediately following a severe violation.
In the event that an employee feels that they have been wrongfully accused, or disciplined, they may file a written appeal with Human Resources. Written appeals must contain:
Human Resources shall review and respond to all written appeals within ten (10) business days.
