First Decisional Conference

If the employee's performance/conduct does not improve, the supervisor meets with the employee and reminds him/her of the obligation to correct the problem. The details of the conference are then confirmed in writing to the employee. The first reminder letter does not require Appointing Authority approval. A copy of the reminder does not need to be sent to the Office of Human Resource Management.

Employees are provided an opportunity to respond in writing to the Office of Human Resource Management if they disagree with the facts presented in the written reminder. The response must be received within seven (7) working days of receipt of the reminder. The response will be reviewed and appropriate action will be taken which may include requesting a response from the department, a modification to the written reminder, or attaching the rebuttal to the written reminder.
