Discipline & Grievance – Nip It in The Bud – 1 Day

May 3, 2023 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm

Purpose of the Seminar

This seminar gives an overview of the discipline and grievance procedure but focuses on where Supervisors, Team Leaders and First Line Managers should be getting involved – at the informal and verbal stages of the process.

Attendance on this seminar ensures that Supervisors, Team Leaders and First Line Managers are stepping into the process early and “nipping problems in the bud” thus stopping issues having to be passed “up” the organisation and formal action having to be taken.

Who is this Seminar for?

Supervisors, Team Leaders and First Line Managers.

Benefits to an organisation or individual

Effective disciplinary procedures are a valuable management tool in avoiding allegations of disparity in the treatment of employees and minimising the risk of an action for unlawful discrimination, constructive dismissal or procedurally unfair dismissal.

The benefits of staff attending this seminar are:

  • Increased efficiency and productivity
  • Employees are treated fairly and consistently, therefore reducing potential discrimination claims (there is no minimum length of service required for this type of claim and the compensation award is uncapped)
  • Reduced turnover, recruitment time and costs
  • Reduced absence and time managing such absence
  • Employees who perceive their employer to be fair, proactive and not reactive will be more loyal and dedicated than those who believe their employer fails to invest in them.

Topics covered: (bullet points)

  • Concerns about discipline and grievance
  • Why discipline and grievance procedures are needed?
  • The detail
  • The process
  • How can you achieve success?

By the end of the Seminar, delegates will be able to: 

  • Identify the key stages of Discipline and Grievance procedures
  • Recognise when to “Nip it in the Bud”
  • Carry out initial informal verbal interviews regarding conduct and capability issues using a wide range of key communication and interpersonal skills
  • Keep accurate records of any Discipline and Grievance issues they have been involved in
