Employee Relations is available to consult with employees and supervisors when there are questions or concerns about expectations, performance, or behavior in the workplace. Our team can coach employees and supervisors on appropriate options for resolution, as well as make referrals to other campus resources. Virginia Tech uses a progressive disciplinary process to address performance and behavioral problems, and is available to provide direction on and clarification of that process.

For disciplinary concerns that cannot be resolved through informal means, written notices may be issued to university and classified staff employee who have completed their 12-month probationary period, as per Commonwealth of Virginia Policy 1.60: Standards of Conduct. Contact Employee Relations and/or your Department of Human Resources consultant before issuing any written notice.

Written notices may not be issued to probationary employees. Contact Employee Relations and/or your Department of Human Resources consultant for guidance relating to disciplining probationary employees.
