13.3 Managing non-performance of national staff

Where a CO is already established and has HR systems in place, a disciplinary process applicable to national staff is most likely already documented. Where a disciplinary process may have to be formulated for the first time, legal advice must be sought, as disciplinary action is often heavily regulated by local labour laws. An example of disciplinary procedures can be found in Annex 21.42 National staff policy manual/disciplinary procedures. Samples of supporting correspondence can be found in Annex 21.43 Disciplinary procedures/sample correspondence.
