A disciplinary action form is designed to be used to inform an employee that he or she has violated a policy or expectation established by his employer. The form can be used as a simple warning or to indicate that some form of punishment will be administered. The main purpose of the disciplinary action form is to help the employee understand that his or her behavior (whatever it may be) is not appropriate and that a change needs to be made.

How do you write an Employee disciplinary action form?

Every disciplinary action form should have this basic section in this general order:

  • Employee information (e.g., name, date notice given, supervisor, etc.).
  • Violation type (e.g., language, rudeness, disobedience, etc.).
  • Violation details (e.g., date, time, and place violation occurred).
  • Employer’s/supervisor’s statement of events.
  • Employee’s statement of events.
  • Judicial action recommended or taken (e.g., dock in pay, demotion, suspension, etc.).
  • Previous warning information (e.g., date and whether verbal or written).
  • Statement of receipt (signatures of both employer and employee).

Other sections can be added as necessary, but these eight sections should always be present. You use them to establish the who, what, where, and when of the violation along with a brief history of the employee’s behavior. Also included in these basic sections is the judicial decision dolled out and the verification that the employee received the information.
