Hello and welcome to JustAnswer.

The first step in employee discipline for state workers is preventative action. These steps are taken to assist employees in achieving acceptable performance in their jobs.

If preventive action doesn't work, corrective action is taken. Corrective action consists of verbal or written warnings to employees, which are taken to get the employee's performance to an acceptable level prior to adverse action being taken against the employee.

The final step is adverse action, which are disciplinary, legal actions taken against an employee for his or her failure to meet the rules of conduct.

Preventative action is mostly undertaken by the employers in order to ensure that the employee's performance meets the standards for the position, it doesn't consist of any types of warnings or discipline of the employees.
