An employee corrective action plan, also known as a performance improvement plan or a disciplinary action form, is a written document outlining an employee's unsatisfactory work or behavior. The document also details the improvement required, the time allowed for improvement, and potential consequences if expectations are not met.
The written form is completed by the supervisor, giving specific examples of both the employee's poor performance and the desired performance. However, the form is only part of the correction action plan. Once documented in writing, the supervisor must meet with the employee to discuss the plan as well as to determine the resources or support the employee needs to succeed.
