Learn How to Discipline the Right Way

Progressive discipline is a safe, effective, and code-compliant approach to workplace discipline. It provides a clear framework for employers to manage their teams and ensure everyone is on the same page.

If you’ve had trouble disciplining employees—be it for tardiness or bad behaviour—our progressive discipline training seminar will give you the tools you need to instill confidence in your managerial style. Through thorough training, case studies, and more, you’ll learn how to use progressive discipline to create a safer, happier, and more productive work environment.

Manage Your Teams Effectively

Discipline is important for any team, no matter how big or small. We help you develop that discipline through practical, actionable channels. Our progressive discipline training course will help you establish productive disciplinary policies that allow you to spend less time on discipline, more time on what’s important.

Our progressive discipline training course will help you:

  • Implement a clear, structured disciplinary policy
  • Clarify disciplinary procedures
  • Set clear boundaries and responsibilities
  • Improve staff morale

Promote a Positive Work Environment

Discipline is never an easy topic. But a well-thought-out policy can make it so. Having a clear disciplinary action plan ensures employees and employers know what’s expected of them and what to expect of others. It helps everyone recognize their responsibilities so that all see the contributions they make, and so everyone works toward a fair, equitable work environment.

Discipline is one subject that employers like to avoid. Our training course can help you approach in a straightforward way to promote a more positive work environment.

Protect Your Company from Liability

Employees have responsibilities—but they also have the right to a fair and discrimination-free workplace. Our progressive discipline training course is designed to help you mitigate discrimination and treat all staff under the same policy. Through real-life training exercises, you’ll learn how to document your disciplinary policy to show you treat all employees fairly and that you comply with all federal and provincial labour standards, including the Canadian Labour Code.

Protect your staff, yourself, and your business. Get in touch to learn more about what we can do for you.

Progressive Discipline

A Smarter—Fairer—Disciplinary Policy

Progressive discipline refers to a disciplinary system with escalating penalties upon each repeat offence. Designed to mitigate offences, it helps you manage discipline without being overly punishing.

Upon first offence, the employer might give a member of staff a verbal warning. If the employee repeats the offence, the penalty may escalate to a more serious disciplinary action, such as a written reprimand. Finally, if the offence continues, the employer may resort to suspending or terminating the employee.

Progressive discipline ensures staff members have ample room to learn and grow from their mistakes. It seeks to reduce offences but focusing on teaching, not punishing. It also provides a clear framework to document offences to protect the employer in case of dispute.

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.
