Addendum F: SECTION 4 DISCIPLINE AND TERMINATION

4.2 Standard for Discipline and Termination

Probationary Employee: Probationary employees may be disciplined or terminated from employment by the District in its sole discretion. The District acknowledges that it is in the best interest of probationary employees to receive early counseling and warning of potential performance problems. Written notice of discipline and/or termination and the reasons therefore, shall be provided to the employee, at the time of such action. Disciplinary action less than termination shall be subject to the grievance procedure provisions of this Handbook in Section 4 but cannot be appealed beyond Level 2 of the grievance procedure. The employee does not have the right to appeal a termination.

Non-Probationary Employee: A non-probationary employee may be disciplined or terminated for just cause. Written notice of discipline and/or termination and the reasons therefore, shall be provided to the employee, at the time of such action. Such discipline or termination shall be subject to the grievance procedure provisions of Section 4 of this Handbook.
