Description :

This work place misconduct webinar training will help you deal with some of the most complex employee relations issues in today’s workplace, from FMLA abuse to workplace violence to the ADA implications of mental illness, how to do internal moral investigations, terminate potentially dangerous employees, how to handle workplace bullying.

When an employee behaves inappropriately in the work place, he/ she may be charged by the employer depending upon the severity of the misconduct. Minor misconduct often involves a lesser punishment while a gross misconduct may result in termination of the employee contract with the employer. Minor misconduct is the actions that are unacceptable but not criminal such as poor task performance, excessive absence and safety violations. Gross misconduct in the work place leads to serious actions that can even result in the employee’s dismissal.

Misconduct has a negative effect on the organization and the employee involved. Discipline at the work place is the means by which you can correct the behavioral deficiencies. The purpose of the discipline should be to correct the behavior rather than punishing the employee.

An employer must set appropriate disciplinary rules and procedures which explain the standards of conduct at work. The HR department has a responsibility to ensure that the employees maintain high standards of conduct and performance. All employees with unsatisfactory performance or misconduct should be observed confidentially and proper steps should be taken in every stage to secure documentation. There should be a written disciplinary procedure and good disciplinary actions will help the employer to take appropriate steps in the event of misconduct of an employee.

This work place misconduct webinar training will help you deal with some of the most complex employee relations issues in today’s workplace, from FMLA abuse to workplace violence to the ADA implications of mental illness, how to do internal moral investigations, terminate potentially dangerous employees, how to handle workplace bullying.

As employees’ legal rights expand, so does the opportunity for abuse. On the one hand, employers often feel paralyzed to investigate – or discipline – employee misconduct for fear of potential litigation; on the other, managers may jump in the gun and fail to recognize the legal issues involved before taking corrective action.

Managers spend 57% of their time putting out fires started by problem employees. And yet, these are not the employees who contribute to the bottom line, enhance workplace morale, or facilitate good work relationships. Human resource professionals can play a vital role in shifting this balance, by preventing, and correcting, potential leave abuse, teaching managers how to deal with threatening, insubordinate, or mentally ill employees, and serving as a consultant in difficult disciplinary or termination decisions.

This course will teach you legal and interpersonal strategies to deal with your worst employee relations nightmare.
