January 2024– What’s New!!! (Repository UPDATE – Disciplinary Actions Guide for Managers)
Effective January 8, 2024, Employee Relations has updated the Employee Disciplinary Action Repository for managers’ use only on the Employee Relations website to better reflect the actions that managers need to take in Workday, to make it easier for managers to include the appropriate information for each specific situation.
This update means managers can no longer utilize the forms previously housed in the Repository. Newly created template guides are now available and can be used as reference tools when completing disciplinary actions in Workday. Managers still have the capability to copy and paste verbiage from the guides to the corresponding areas in the Workday business process. However, managers must not upload these example guides, or use the old paper or electronic Employee Disciplinary Notice (EDN) forms in Workday, to replace completing the Workday business processes.
As a reminder of the Workday business processes used when completing discipline for employees, managers should select the appropriate discipline level from among the following:
• Oral/Verbal Warning
• Written Warning (including advance to written)
• Administrative Leave
• Recommend Termination
Note: UAMS does not use the ‘Offline Disciplinary Action’ selection in Workday. It is used by other UofA System locations.
Managers should routinely reference the Employee Relations website to validate the correct repository guide prior to using it in Workday to ensure the most current guide is being used.
