A Manager’s Guide to Discipline and Documentation

Overview:

A key role for any manager or supervisor is to ensure employees meet the expectations for appropriate and lawful conduct at work. Dealing with problematic behavior and taking disciplinary action can be stressful. But simply ignoring or avoiding problems is not an option because it may signal to employees that inappropriate behavior is acceptable. And mishandling disciplinary issues may result in employee claims of breach of contract, wrongful termination, or discrimination and retaliation. Consistent and fair procedures, honest communication, and clear expectations can help managers deal with disciplinary issues in a way that improves behavior with fewer negative repercussions.

This course explains the principles of effective employee discipline, including the concept of due process in the disciplinary procedure, and it describes how to respond to and document a disciplinary issue appropriately. This course was developed with subject matter support provided by the Labor & Employment Law Group of the law firm of Baker, Donelson, Bearman, Caldwell & Berkowitz, PC.
