“A Notice to show cause is the starting point for any disciplinary action. The notice will describe the alleged misconduct, set out the specific grounds for the disciplinary action and provide reasonable opportunity to the noticee (recipient of the notice) to furnish a reply to the notice, ie, to present his/her version to justify as to why a disciplinary action shall not be taken. The noticee will generally have to respond to the show cause notice within the specified number of days. The period will be clearly set out in the notice. If the noticee does not respond within the time specified in the notice, a decision may be made and disciplinary action can be taken against the noticee without him having had the opportunity to present his case.”
