It is a disciplinary policy and procedure designed to provide structure
to a process of corrective action to improve and many times prevent a
repeat of undesirable employee behavior and performance issues.

similar policy in place. If you do not have a policy such as this one in
place then you can use the sample below to use as a guide to create one for
your church, organization...

sexual or physical assault and/or theft will have zero tolerance).
