Proficient Auto Transport supports the use of progressive discipline to address issues such as poor work performance or misconduct. Our progressive discipline policy is designed to provide a corrective action process to improve performance and prevent a recurrence of undesirable behavior and/or performance issues. Our progressive discipline policy is consistent with our organizational values, HR best practices and employment laws.

Outlined below are the steps of our progressive discipline policy and procedures. Proficient Auto Transport reserves the right to combine or skip steps in this process depending on the facts of each situation and the nature of the offense. The level of disciplinary intervention may also vary. Some of the factors that will be considered are whether the offense is repeated despite coaching, counseling and/or training; the employee’s work record; and the impact the conduct and performance issues have on our organization.

The following outlines Proficient Auto Transport’s progressive discipline process:

  • Verbal warning: A supervisor verbally counsels an employee about an issue of concern, and a written record of the discussion is placed in the employee’s file for future reference.
  • Written warning: Written warnings are used for behavior or violations that a supervisor considers serious or in situations when a verbal warning has not helped change unacceptable behavior. Written warnings are placed in an employee’s personnel file. Employees should recognize the grave nature of the written warning.
  • Termination: The employer terminates the employee removing the employee from his or her job.


Proficient Auto Transport reserves the right to determine the appropriate level of discipline for any inappropriate conduct, including oral and written warnings, suspension with or without pay, demotion and discharge.
