Discipline & Disciplinary Procedures at Workplace

Establishing a disciplined work environment, dealing with indiscipline effectively and setting up policies and procedures to ensure that companies follow best practices and comply with legal requirements in disciplinary matters is very crucial in today’s corporate world. This is because research has shown that there is a nexus linking a disciplined workforce, sustainable productivity and increased profitability.
While the internal disciplinary procedures of the individual company may vary depending on a number of factors including size and the company structure, the legal requirements for disciplinary matters are the same. The various disciplinary measures often invoked at workplace by the management such as queries, suspension, termination and dismissal do have legal procedural requirements & implications. This poses challenges to today’s HR Managers in particular and employers of labour in general. Lack of professionally designed policies on discipline and disciplinary procedures or adoption of wrong procedures in disciplinary matters, at the very best creates employee relations problems and at the very worst exposes the company to avoidable law suits liabilities including the attendant reputational risks.
