Preparing Yourself

In order to provide an environment conducive to staff and student well-being and that the institution remains viable, the University needs to ensure that the institution is well governed, and that student, employee and employer rights are protected.  Discipline is one mechanism available to Rhodes as an employer to address situations where staff do not abide by acceptable rules of conduct and do not discharge their duties faithfully and diligently.

As part of your Conditions of Service, you are required to familiarise yourself with the Staff Disciplinary Procedure. The procedure is available at:

If you receive notification of a disciplinary hearing, it is important that you understand the disciplinary procedure and that you take this process seriously. Depending on the level of offence, and if you are found guilty, this could lead to your dismissal.

To assist you in this regard, a guide has been developed: Guide for Staff Members

In addition, if you need assistance, please contact your HR Generalist.
