Disciplinary action can be taken on the misconducts mentioned under the industrial employment standing orders act & state rules. The noticed negative behaviour has to be correlated to the listed misconducts and charges are required to be levelled against delinquent employee as show cause cum chargesheet. Then the domestic enquiry by enquiry bofficer, findings of enquiry, and if charges are established then the punishment is to be awarded.

On general terms, it is not mistakes but mischiefs that entail disciplinary action. And the basic requirement for any able administrator is the capacity to assume responsibility to distinguish a mistake from a mischief.
