The TNM maintains a strict disciplinary policy for any infractions and/or violations of the Ethics and Performance Policies. Serious unmitigated violations may cause immediate suspension or termination. The disciplinary process is as follows:
- First Infraction: A written Notice #1 is issued, and Corrective Action #1 is required. Possible suspension may occur.
- Second Infraction: A written Notice #2 is issued, and Corrective Action #2 is required. Possible suspension may occur.
- Third Infraction: A final notice is issued, leading to dismissal or a request for resignation.
Minor, easily correctable infractions will be dealt with by verbal warning. Non-correction or continued abuse will constitute grounds for Written Notice(s). Each Written Notice will require a written Corrective Action Plan by the offender and agreed to by the offender’s management. Refusal to provide a corrective plan will be sufficient grounds for immediate dismissal.
