Discipline policy for a restaurant
Institutional Affiliation


According to Foucault (2018), discipline in the workplace refers to how the supervisory
personnel correct behavioral deficiencies in ensuring adherence to established company rules to
correct behavior. Punishment is not designed to embarrass employees (Vardaman, Gondo, &
Allen, 2014, p. 111). It is established to provide guidelines for employee performance and
