Discipline and Termination:  Rules, Policies and Procedures 8–hours 

Instructor: D.J. Van Meter, Ph.D or John Popielarczyk

The traditional punitive approach to progressive discipline and termination has become increasing burdensome and complex. Civil rights laws, unions and civil service board 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.

Attendees will be taught:

  • How court and arbiters’ support for 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.

Each student will take home class manual, model forms ready to use and a training certificate.
