Disciplinary Matters

The Issue

Some of the most difficult management issues facing small employers are those relating to persistent low-level under-performance or misconduct. If left unchecked they can result in other staff having to take on too much work; low productivity; a loss of quality; and poor service.

However, dealing with poor performance or misconduct can be very stressful and time-consuming for managers. It is very easy to get it wrong, resulting in potential constructive dismissal claims or staff morale problems.

The Solution

Tackle these sorts of issues early before they become serious. Don't let bad behaviour go unchecked. Follow a clear and fair disciplinary procedure. Investigate allegations thoroughly before taking any action. Keep careful records of meetings, evidence and disciplinary warnings.
