CCC may use several types of discipline depending upon the frequency and/or seriousness of the violation which may include a verbal warning, written warning, suspension or termination.
These disciplinary steps may be taken in any order, in any combination or none of them prior to termination.
Certain performance issues may result in an employee being placed on a “Performance Improvement Plan” where the employee is required to meet and sustain performance objectives within a defined period of time. Failure to satisfactorily meet the objectives may result in termination.
