Enforcing Discipline

Revised: 05 February 2017 by leader.gifGreatJackal

Overview

There may come a time where you as an Officer must take disciplinary action against members who have broken our Code of Ops. As an officer you are expected to uphold and enforce our Code of Ops to its fullest extent with no exception and across the entire clan. There may also be times that you may have to strike a member from another Team, Division etc when none of that member’s officers are online.

Striking Members from other Divisions

If you see someone committing a breach of Discipline, and:

A) An Officer is online from their Division (and not afk!, they must be responsive to a poke), then

1.     Poke the Officer, and let them know what you just witnessed.

2.     That Officer is to investigate, and issue strikes as required/Suspend from Forums/TeamSpeak as required etc.

B) There is no Officer online from their Division, or the Officer is not responding to a TeamSpeak poke, then

1.     The Officer who witnessed the discipline breach is to issue the Strike/s, and Suspend from TeamSpeak/Forums as deemed reasonably necessary (ensuring the Strike entry contains evidence (if applicable/where possible).

2.      The Officer who witnessed the discipline breach is then to PM the Commander and Team Leader of the offender, notifying them of the breach that occurred, and the actions taken (including any strikes/suspensions).

If there is a disagreement from the:

A) Team Leader or Vice of the offender with any aspect of the Strike issued (either the quantity, the type of offense striked for, the reason for striking etc), they must take the case to their Commander, who must review all the facts and determine whether the strike is deserved and abides with DI’s Code of Ops.

B) Commander of the offender with any aspect of the Strike issued (either the quantity, the type of offense striked for, the reason for striking etc), they must:

1.     PM the Chief Justice with their concerns, providing reasoning as to why they deem the strike as unreasonable.

2.     Encourage the offender to Appeal their strike within the Justice System.

Important Notes

– Even after consideration of a Commander’s disagreement, the Justice Committee may rule that the strike stands.

– The Commander (or anyone) must not intimidate, berate, insult or attack the Witnessing Officer in anyway, as they are the ones who did what is expected of them as an Officer at the time the event took place, and upheld the discipline of DI in the absence of an officer from the offender’s division.

– If the member decides not to appeal their strike, then the strike will stand regardless of whether the Commander believe it unreasonable or not.

– The Commander is not obliged to challenge a strike of one of their members, even if one of their Division Officers believe it was unreasonable.

Summary

– All Officers have the Right to Strike any member, regardless of Division, as long as the conditions above have been met.

– The purpose of allowing cross-division discipline enforcement is to ensure that members do not take advantage of AFK or offline opportunities to breach the Discipline code set forth by Damage Inc.
