Learn About Progressive Discipline in the Workplace
As an employer, we know that you want to cultivate a work environment that is as positive and nurturing as can be. You want to celebrate your employees' achievements and steer them toward success. Leading them toward continued growth and future accomplishments is a continuous task, though—and employers should keep them in mind even when they need to take disciplinary action.
This idea of employee advocacy is central to progressive discipline in the workplace. Employers should encourage their employees to improve in the wake of inappropriate behaviour. What's more, employees should be able to anticipate when they're on the brink of violating workplace guidelines—and that is something that can only be done by having clear expectations, legible disciplinary policies, and more. Also particularly for federal employers you can only terminate for just cause after one year of continuous employment, documenting and applying progressive discipline is one of the only means to support a just cause dismissal.
At our legal firm, we help employers cultivate this sort of workplace. During our training sessions, we will cover such topics as:
- How to conduct disciplinary meetings

Progressive Discipline for a Positive Workplace
No employer wants their employees to live in fear of being terminated. Environments like that stifle creativity and lower morale. Those who want to steer their employees towards continual success cultivate an environment where employee errors are met with fairness, understanding, and zero surprises.
Our workshops show you how to implement transparent policies that protect the rights of employees and the internal health of your company. As an employer, you should always abide by the law that governs employment be it the Canada Labour Code, the Employment Standard Act, the Human Rights Code, and the Canadian Human Rights Act when steering employees towards success. Our training programs help you do just that.
