What Are the Best Practices for Implementing Discipline and Terminations


Learn what to do after you have counseled, coached and documented performance issues and things are not getting better.

The purpose of discipline is to effect a change in an employee's conduct or performance. The disciplinary process sets the standard for other employees, but it should not be used to make an example out of someone. You never want to guarantee or promise progressive discipline either in order to maintain flexibility within the disciplinary process. This video reviews the difference between progress discipline and at-will discipline and discusses internal complaint policies.
