Process of management of discipline According to standing order 1946, when we find the event/complaint of indiscipline by an employee then we follow the following process to deal with such event. This process starts when the complaint against the employee is reported. Step1- Issue a charge sheet of the complaints against the accused employee. Charge sheet is a list of all complaints/ charges against the employee. Eg. It is found a complaint against Mr. XYZ for stealing of A equipment on 4 April 2009. Step2- Call the employee to explain by issuing a charge sheet against him. For relevant explanation the employee should be given the time of 1 week to 15 weeks. Step3- The explanation should be considered. Step 4- if the explanation is satisfying then the case will be resolved. If not satisfactory then an enquiry should be ordered. It should be in the form of interview.

Step5- If there is a big pending in the enquiry then the employee should be suspended. During the suspension ½ of the wages should be paid. After 3 months ¾ of the wages should be paid. Step6- If enquiry finds him guilty of the misdeed then according to the degree of the misbehavior a notice is given to the employee then the proper action is taken against the employee.
