Course overview

For many managers, disciplinary procedures are the least favorite part of their job. It’s an integral part of a management role but, done incorrectly, it can cause tension and ill feeling within any organization, negatively impacting the whole business. Because of this, any disciplinary action or grievance needs to be handled with care and professionalism by all parties involved.

Although HR staff don’t directly manage procedures, they do play a vital role throughout the process. They act as administrators but also as advisors to the person in charge of investigation. Making sure you remain impartial within this is key to delivering a fair, independent process.
