This course teaches that the employment relationship is an enforceable contract wherein management has inherent and enforceable rights. These rights include requiring employees to: attend work on a regular basis, give a fair day’s work, be subordinate, lawful to directives, perform to standards, get along with others and to be loyal to their employer’s lawful business needs. The problem is that the traditional people- oriented style of management has been seriously weakened by 40 years of employee labor and employee rights laws. A performance-oriented model of management based on principles found in contract law, economics and Performance Theory is a more powerful, practical, simpler and enforceable alternative. We are a “How to” company providing answers.

Topics include: Management’s Rights

• understanding why management must move away from people management and move towards performance management.

• provide support for the fact that courts and arbiters support the enforcement of management’s rights

• define the “Universal Rights” of management

• design the foundation for a performance-oriented style of management

Attendees will receive a certificate of training, a class manual and hard copies of
 model forms and policies to use as resources for implementing this program into
 their agency.  Class size is limited, please register early.

The traditional punitive approach to progressive discipline and termination has become increasingly burdensome and complex. Civil rights laws, unions and civil service boards provide too many opportunities for problem employees to file frivolous grievances and law suits. Management needs to include non- punitive approaches, last chance agreements and no-fault terminations to deal with employees who will not or can’t comply with the rules of the organization and be productive.

Topics Include:

  • How courts and arbiters support management’s right to enforce its rules, policies, procedures and practices with discipline and termination.
  • The principles of Just Cause and Due Process as they apply to progressive discipline and terminations.
  • How to use traditional v. non-traditional approaches to progressive discipline and termination.

Attendees will receive a manual, model forms, model discipline-termination policy and certificate of attendance.
