Effective Workplace Discipline: Getting It Right, From Counselling to Dismissals

Avoid the mistakes which could potentially cost your business

Section 185 of the Labour Relations Act gives all employees the right not to be unfairly dismissed.  Yet many employers still make fundamental mistakes when taking corrective action against their employees.  As an employer, there is nothing more frustrating than having to compensate or reinstate an employee who has broken your rules.  The key to successful workplace discipline starts with understanding the principles of progressive discipline and ensuring you know the procedural requirements to ensure fairness. 

All too often, employers are ill prepared when taking disciplinary action against troublesome employees, particularly when it comes to conducting disciplinary enquiries.  Even if you have experienced expert consultants available to chair such enquiries, things will not go your way unless you prepare thoroughly and present a well prepared, structured case to maximize your chances of success.

SAEFA, in association with Gordon Angus and Associates, is running a one-day workshop to guide employers through the discipline provisions of the Labour Relations Act.

Topics covered

  • Fair and effective discipline
  • Dismissal and the Labour Relations Act
  • How to conduct a fair disciplinary enquiry
  • Practical guidance on dealing with common disciplinary problems in the workplace
