Labour Relations & Effective Disciplinary



Many companies have costly compensation orders from the CCMA due to Line Managers and HR staff not complying with legislation regarding disciplinary matters. This comprehensive course gives detailed insight into discipline in the workplace. This course will teach line managers how to effectively chair a disciplinary hearing. The course also gives an overview of the Basic Conditions of Employment Act, focusing on contracts, probation, fixed term contracts, working hours and over time pay. When it comes to discipline complacency, inconsistency and turning “a blind eye” by management is some of the pitfalls to discipline, companies often experience. Bullying tactics by the unions and shop stewards are also often encountered. These factors often lead to the lowering of disciplinary rules and standards in organisations. This course gives a practical hands-on approach for dealing with discipline in the workplace. How to conduct disciplinary hearings in line with the principles of fairness and equity as envisaged by the Labour Relations Act is covered. Misconduct issues of absenteeism, intoxication on duty, theft, sexual harassment and many other issues of misconduct are dealt with from the perspective of relevant case law and codes of good practice. The course also covers how managers can deal with issues of poor performance such as tardiness, idleness, inefficiency and laziness with confidence and consistency. Medical incapacity and prolonged illness in the workplace are also becoming a common place issue that line managers need to deal with. We also look at procedures needed for conducting fair retrenchments.
