Disciplinary procedures

Every company requires a set of guidelines that lay out how it should respond to issues of ill discipline within the workplace. This should a wide arrange of issues from simple problems like failure to meet deadlines, to more serious issues such as theft and sexual harassment. These guidelines are often heavily influenced or governed by local, regional, or national legislation, especially in European countries.

Disciplinary guidelines must be readily accessed and understood by all employees to avoid any legal issues and to ensure no employee can say ‘I didn’t know about that.’ That’s why they need to be placed in an HRM system with all other important company information, readily accessed and viewed from anywhere at any time.
