Discipline Discipline

Problems we see regularly:

The Employer gives the employee a series of verbal warnings and does not keep a record of these warnings. After a while, the Employer can no longer tolerate the inappropriate behaviour of the Employee and decides that they want to terminate him/her. They consult their lawyer and realize they did not apply progressive discipline. All of a sudden the Employee is bombarded with written reprimands, suspensions without pay and then termination all within a very short period of time. This is the WRONG WAY to apply progressive discipline and it can be costly to proceed in that fashion.
