Concerned about one of your employee’s substandard performance or inappropriate conduct in the workplace but not sure how to properly address it? In this webinar, we provide a comprehensive review of the topic of progressive discipline and performance management including providing practical examples and helpful tips to allow you to engage in effective progressive discipline in your workplace – both in unionized and non-unionized settings.
In this seminar, we will:
- Review the concept, purpose and importance of progressive discipline
- Review the types of conduct that typically warrant progressive discipline and how to implement it
- Review how progressive discipline is applied and provide tips for drafting disciplinary letters
- Review examples of when progressive discipline may not be warranted including situations where immediate termination for cause may be appropriate
- Consider when to implement a performance improvement plan either as an alternative or as part of the progressive discipline process
- Review non-disciplinary strategies for addressing poor performance
- Review other considerations when taking disciplinary action such as accommodation needs and human rights considerations
