Corrective Action in its literal sense is training that corrects, molds, or improves, and its purpose in the workplace is to correct, mold, or improve job-related performance or behavior. Corrective Action is to be progressive in nature so that it uses the least severe action necessary to correct undesirable behavior and moves to increasingly severe measures only if the problem is not corrected. These steps include an initial written warning, a subsequent or additional written warning, a final written warning which could include a suspension without pay or a demotion or transfer, and a termination.
