Every business needs to have managers who are able to deal with disciplinary issues and grievance issues in the workplace effectively. Poor management of discipline, grievances and dismissal can be very costly in time, money and damage to employee relations. A thorough understanding of the legal environment, including how to apply the law correctly, is essential for good management.
Ensuring your people know what is expected of them and the rules within which they operate is key to getting the best results from your employees. Achieving this focus and helping others in the workplace understand this perspective is very important.
