Mastering Employee Discipline: Documentation Strategies and 101 Sample Write-Ups
Writer’s block. It can strike managers and HR professionals when they sit down to document employee performance and behavior issues. But correctly documenting discipline is critical for both legal protection and clear employee communication.
Most managers never learned how. Now they can.
Mastering Employee Discipline will show you how to document and discuss employee discipline in the most clear, accurate and legally safe way possible. Equally important, you’ll find out how to avoid “codifying the damage” to your company if a plaintiff's attorney ever attempts to use your disciplinary documents against you.
Best of all, your host will be Paul Falcone, vice president of HR at Time Warner Cable and the man who wrote the best-selling book on the subject, 101 Sample Write-Ups for Documenting Employee Performance Problems: A Guide to Progressive Discipline & Termination (one of SHRM’s “Great 8 for 2008” books).
