Outline Content

Managing discipline - in other words, unacceptable behaviour and poor performance – may not be something you really want to think about. However, you need to be prepared should things not go to plan. Often, a quiet word early from a manager is enough to sort out a problem over an employee's conduct or performance.

But, if that doesn't work, you need to take action and

  • comply with the law
  • understand the basics for handling discipline
  • manage a problem over conduct or under-performance from investigating it through to, if necessary, dismissal.

Learning Outcomes

  • Highlight the role and importance of good procedures and clear rules and standards
  • Outline the difference between managing conduct and capability
  • Provide guidance on an effective investigation
  • Give an overview of how to manage a disciplinary hearing
