The Importance of Disciplinaries Training

Managing disciplinaries is a part of all managers' working lives. Learning how to resolve these situations confidently and fairly is a key management skill.

If you have any questions that are not covered here, please get in touch.

What is the correct procedure for a disciplinary?
The correct procedure for disciplinary action will vary between organisations but it will have some basic steps that are legally required. Some of these steps can vary from country to country, such as the right of the employee to be accompanied. It is important to have training on managing disciplinaries and be familiar with your own organisation’s internal processes.
What is a final warning?
A final warning is one of the more severe outcomes of a disciplinary procedure. It is official confirmation that termination of employment will result if the steps laid out during the hearings are not followed. In many cases, employers will prefer to handle situations before they get to this stage, though this is not always possible.
Should workplace bullying lead to disciplinary action?
Workplace bullying is a very serious matter that should be dealt with swiftly and fairly. In some cases, it can be dealt with informally and through discussion. In others, disciplinary action will be necessary. Bullying of any kind needs to be handled well. It can cause mental health issues, sickness absence, staff turnover and low morale.
