Discipline and Underperformance at Work

Discipline and Underperformance at Work

Dealing with discipline and underperformance can be challenging and confronting for employees and employers alike, but it does need to be addressed.

In the world of work, managing underperforming employees and handling conduct related matters is part of the job! This workshop will in particular look at:

  • Managing the underperformer.
  • Handling different types of misconduct issues that require various disciplinary outcomes up to and including dismissal.
  • Addressing the complexity of handling grievances raised during a disciplinary process.

NI is different from the rest of the UK in this area. We have repealed the Statutory Grievance Procedures but have retained the Statutory Disciplinary and Dismissal Procedures. Our revised LRA Code of Practice on Disciplinary and Grievance Procedures carries penalties of up to 50% for breaches of its standards.

This event will put underperformance, discipline/dismissal into a legal and contractual context, giving attendees a fuller understanding of the revised best practice requirements of the Code.

100% of recent delegates said they would recommend this event to colleagues and peers!

What are the learning outcomes?
This workshop combines practical advice and exercises on managing underperformance and discipline at work. No PowerPoint slides are used. Template letters and other materials compliant with the statutory dismissal procedures are used in this highly interactive course.

Who should attend?
Anyone with responsibility for carrying out or advising on disciplinary or performance processes. This event will not suit those with considerable experience in this area.
