Employee Disciplinary Issues
If you work with people long enough you will find yourself in a situation where you are having to address issues with either your employee’s performance, conduct or attendance. Dealing with employee disciplinary issues is not easy for many business owners. Poor attendance and poor performance tend to be the issues that our clients face most frequently. Often by the time they call us they have tried an informal approach on a number of occasions and the situation isn’t getting any better.
At Lighter HR, we help our clients through the employee disciplinary process no matter what the situation and no matter what steps have already been taken. We will be there to help you manage the situation and achieve the outcome your business needs.
We can support you in dealing with any employee disciplinary issue you have within your business.
We can either guide you through the disciplinary process or you can hand the entire disciplinary issue over to us and we’ll investigate and hear the matter on your behalf.
When dealing with difficult employee situations process is everything. The steps in themselves aren’t complicated but human emotion has a tendency of complicating these situations. We can help remove that emotion and help you focus just on the facts and the desired outcome.
At a basic level we can provide you with a full written process, scripts, documentation and be at the end of the phone to answer your questions. This could be a good option for you if you are looking for some peace of mind with minimum cost.
At the highest level we can deal with the situation for you. We can perform any investigation that's needed, conduct the disciplinary hearing and take care of all of the documentation that you need in order to demonstrate that you followed a sound process.
As a first step we’ll ask you to complete a questionnaire that gives us some basic information about the situation you’re dealing with and what events have happened to date. We’ll then arrange an initial telephone consultation with you to discuss your position in more detail and the level of support you require.
Of course, we won’t pass judgement on what has happened in the past but will advise you on the processes you need to follow to avoid the same outcome in the future.
