According to the guidelines provided in the codes regulating the teaching service in Kenya, management of discipline cases is conducted in a simple, fair and effective manner.
For example if a secondary school teacher is found guilty of professional misconduct the school’s Boards of Management (BoM) will interdict him or her at the investigation stage.
County directors will only interdict secondary school principals. Deputy county directors will interdict primary school head teachers and secondary schools teachers in institutions where the BoM is not functional.

Sub-county directors will interdict primary school teachers while the TSC Chief Executive Officer will interdict staff in cases when investigations are instituted by the head office, according to the guidelines provided by the commission.
The following are reasons that can easily instigate the interdiction of a teacher by the commission;
Cases of immoral behaviour.
Neglect of duty.
Desertion of duty.
Mismanagement of public funds.
Conviction of criminal offence.
If a teacher is guilty, will be deregistered and this means he or she will not participate in activities involving teaching profession in Kenya.
Remember that in a case where the teacher is innocent, interdiction is revoked. He or she may be warned in writing, surcharged or suspended for a period not exceeding six months.
