A Practical Guide to Managing Disciplinaries
Wednesday 26th July , 09:30 – 12:30
Managing a disciplinary hearing can be daunting for line managers who do not have extensive experience of these. If the employer fails to conduct a reasonable process, worst case scenario the employee makes a claim for unfair dismissal. Our webinar provides practical advice and guidance on how to approach this to equip you with the knowledge and skills to navigate this tricky area of employee relations.
This course will include the following:
- Resolve issues informally and identify when formal action is necessary
- Preparing for a disciplinary hearing and the procedural aspects to get right
- How to chair a disciplinary hearing
- Deal with disruptive witnesses and employees
- Weighing up the evidence and mitigating factors, and deciding the appropriate penalty
We love a good natter and love to gather opinions from our delegates on our courses. Our style is to facilitate rather than to tell. To do this online we therefore like to have everyone on camera and the mics on when needed to be able to hear what everyone has to say. At the end of the day, its your course not ours!
In our experience, for a truly interactive workshop the numbers are best kept to below 12 and ideally between 8 and 10 delegates. This allows for everyone to feel like they have the opportunity to have a say and to enable the content to be worked through in the time allowed.
We like to bring a high level of interactivity to our sessions and include the use of discussions, exercises, quizzes, polls, break out rooms, whiteboards, and annotation. Just like our face-to-face sessions we want to ensure the activities are varied and deliver the content in the best possible way. The sessions will vary between group work, small break out sessions and individual work.
If you are looking for something other than an online workshop, then have a look at our on-demand management development training modules. These provide more in-depth learning on each topic.
We will provide you with a PDF of the workshop slides, copies of relevant handouts and any book recommendations during the session!
