63. It is recommended that the Code of Discipline (CD 60) be amended to include procedures that must be followed whenever a staff member has committed an alleged infraction.


The Code of Discipline derives from the Standards of Professional Conduct and is intended to set out the behavior that is expected of employees. CSC has developed a guide for managers entitled "Guide to Staff Discipline and non-disciplinary demotion or termination for cause". This guide contains steps to follow in the disciplinary process, ranging from the investigation, documentation to the ultimate final determination of disciplinary sanctions. This guide is also used when delivering staff relations training to managers with case studies to give them some on hands experience in dealing with disciplinary investigations.
