Can an appointing authority take action other than dismissal, suspension, demotion or reduction in base salary to address unsatisfactory performance?
Employers may develop a corrective discipline policy that identifies actions that an appointing authority may take other than dismissal, suspension, demotion, or reduction in base salary, that represent alternative formal measures that do not deprive an employee of pay, yet still help an employee address unsatisfactory performance. Actions taken by an appointing authority in accordance with the employer's corrective discipline policy carry the same weight as disciplinary actions which impact pay.
