based on professionally developed employee policies that will protect your business and improve employee performance

Leadership Skills for Life has taken over forty years of experience and developed them into two of the most important professionally written eBooks on the Internet specifically to help you.

The most important part of the progressive disciplinary process is to make sure it is fair based on facts and not feelings. Therefore, before taking any progressive disciplinary action you should ask yourself if it is fair. As per labor practices there is a standard of seven factors that are used to determine Just Cause in the labor and employment context

a)     The employee knew of the company’s policy

b)     The company’s policy was reasonable

c)      The organization carried out fact finding to determine that the employee was in violation of the policy.

d)     The fact finding session was fair and objective

e)     Evidence existed of the employee’s violation of the policy

f)       The company’s policy was consistently applied

g)     The discipline was reasonable and proportional to the offense (i.e. the punishment fit the crime)

Progressive discipline in today's business world is the only way to help you correct poor or unacceptable behavior in your workplace. Whether it's dealing with tardiness, disrespectful behavior, stealing, sexual harassment, absenteeism, insubordination, destruction of company property, staying of their cellular phones, misusing company property, or you name it, these two eBooks are a tool you will keep close by at all times.
