       A. Documentation of performance problems to determine if it is a chronic or an occasional problem.
       B. Informational meeting with employee outlining problem, expectation, timeframe until next review, and consequence if performance is resolved or not resolved. Voluntary referral to the EAP, along with description of the program.
       C. Formal meeting covering above issues, this time with written documentation going into the personnel file. Voluntary referral to the EAP along with a statement that standard disciplinary procedures will be followed.
       D. Beginning of progressive discipline according to SMUD policy
