States the steps of due process that employers must adhere to when the discipline system is invoked. Discusses the idea of “just cause” and covers Carroll R. Daughty’s codification of seven “tests applicable for learning whether employee had just and proper cause for disciplining an employee”. Distinguishes between the progressive discipline system and the affirmative discipline system covering equality of treatment in particular. Concludes that a bad or misunderstood system is worse than no system at all and urges companies to make sure the policy they meets their requirements.
