DePaul’s process for progressive discipline offers clear steps and communication strategies to address issues of unsatisfactory performance or conduct from student employees. The disciplinary process may start at any counseling stage, taking into consideration the severity of the issues and maintaining consistency in the administration of disciplinary actions. All sides of an issue should be heard prior to administering any disciplinary actions.
Please note: progressive discipline does not apply to student employees within their six-month introductory period. If you are experiencing issues with an employee during the introductory period, consult with Sarah Carbone, senior associate director of the Office of Student Employment, before taking action. For more information, please refer to DePaul’s Progressive Discipline policy.
To report any one of these issues, please use the Progressive Disciplinary Action Form.
The following list identifies some factors for managers to consider prior to imposing any disciplinary action.
Please contact the Office of Student Employment for guidelines on the process, when necessary.
