Every employer and manager hopes that this is the one HR policy they never need to refer to, but misbehaving employee's is a common and delicate workplace issue that must be handled correctly.
What is disciplinary action?
If an employee acts inappropriately, or outside of their contractual obligations, such as being persistently late, acting aggressively towards another member of staff or stealing from the workplace, then you are within your rights to take disciplinary action.
This would mean starting a formal procedure, which should be outlined in your written disciplinary policy, in which you notify your employee of their unacceptable behaviour and make the appropriate business decision, whilst following the legal expectations, which may ultimately result in dismissal.
What does our Disciplinary Training Course offer?
Disciplinary action can be difficult for managers and HR departments to tackle for many reasons, including the rights that are in place to protect employees from being treated unfairly.
There are many intrinsic legal aspects to disciplinary procedures at work that must be clearly understood and implemented to run a just, compliant and productive business.
In this training session, we examine every aspect of staff disciplinary in a practical manner.
During the disciplinary training course, you will learn:
- The different types of discipline (conduct, absence and performance)
- Types of sanction
- The disciplinary process
- How to manage each stage
- The role of the accompanying person
- Suspension and gross misconduct
Course duration: 1-2 days
