Properly applying progressive discipline is especially important for federally regulated employers because if an employer would like to end the employment relationship with an employee who has worked from them for more than 12 continuous months, then they need to prove just cause to terminate the relationship. Progressive discipline need to be properly applied to be able to prove just cause.

What are the Steps of the Progressive Discipline Approach?
The progressive discipline approach follows a general step-by-step process designed to give the employee clear instructions and opportunities to correct the behaviour or actions that have led to upper management's dissatisfaction. These steps are supposed to be proportional to the employee misconduct, and no not need to be followed in exactly this order. Employers may use the same step more than once if needed. It is not a three-strikes-you're-out system, but is meant to be adapted and catered to the specific issue at hand.
The following is a brief outline of the steps involved:
- A verbal warning
- A written warning
- Suspension without pay, normally in graduated increments
