Other disciplines:

• Verbal Warnings: Verbal warnings are informal methods that put employees on notice that they have engaged in behavior or actions that can lead to more serious consequences if not immediately corrected.
• Performance Improvement Plans: Employers with a vested interest in helping employees improve develop what is commonly referred to as a performance improvement plan, or PIP. PIPs are detailed plans that identify areas for improvement and a series of steps the employee must complete to receive an acceptable performance rating.
• Suspensions: Suspension without pay is a form of workplace discipline employers typically use before deciding whether to terminate the employee – it may be the last step before employee discharge.
• Reassignments and Loss of Privileges: Within some organizations, performance-based alternative work assignments include opportunities for telecommuting, teleworking or flexible work schedules.
