Navigating Through the Disciplinary Process

The right to establish work rules and regulations would be meaningless without the right to enforce them.  The employer could not effectively exercise its right and responsibility to maintain order and efficiency without the power to enforce disciplinary procedures.  Disciplinary investigation is the first step the supervisor must take in determining whether or not an employee has violated a work rule or regulation.  This two-day course is a must for anyone who is actively supervising staff or who may be placed in a position of supervision in the future.  This instruction will make the investigative and disciplinary process easy to understand through the use of simple to follow guidelines.  Emphasis will be placed on the internal investigative function.
