Dish out discipline consistently

by on
in Discrimination and Harassment,Human Resources

Always apply the same type of disciplinary measures to “similarly situated” events. The case: An African-American nurse wore a red jogging suit to work instead of her uniform. She refused to change and was fired for insubordination. She sued for race discrimination, saying white nurses weren’t fired for other violations, such as taking unscheduled absences. The court ruled in the hospital’s favor, saying you don’t have to impose the same penalties unless the offenses are “similarly situated” to each other. Always keep a paper trail to document your consistent use of discipline. (Jones v. Bessemer Carroway Medical Center, CA 11, 137 F. 3d 1306)
