Performance Improvement and Disciplinary Action
Employees have a valuable and critical role in helping the University fulfill its mission. Supervisors should make reasonable efforts to train and support employees in understanding job requirements and assist employees in improving performance and addressing issues that negatively affect the workplace. All employees of the University should be treated respectfully in accordance with University Administrative Policy (UAP) 2240, Respectful Campus. In addition, the University encourages the use of coaching progressive discipline, as described UAP 3215, Performance Management, when possible, in order to promote employee success. Other situations may be too serious to address with progressive discipline and warrant immediate actions. The University retains the right in accordance with applicable laws and University policies to determine the methods, means, and personnel required to maintain efficient operations. This includes the right to hire, promote, transfer, assign, and retain employees in positions within the University.
