It is important to explain policies to new team members, but poor documentation of practice policies can lead to confusion and wrongful termination lawsuits. It’s important to put your discipline policy in your employee manual. Something like this, "If an employee fails to perform to the stated standards of the practice, he or she will be provided with a verbal warning.
