Small Business Disciplinary Procedures
In any size business, disciplinary procedures form a critical part of running a successful operation. Implementing a clear policy on how you will deal with performance issues will enable you to handle problems with staff quickly and effectively.
The objective of a disciplinary procedure is to improve the performance of employees, not to simply punish a team member following an occurrence of poor work or misconduct. In minor instances of misconduct it is always advisable to give an employee an opportunity to improve their performance before issuing a sanction.
Small businesses can't afford to assume that staff issues will always be able to be resolved with an informal chat. Having a robust disciplinary procedure in place which has examples or misconduct and defines what is expected will be needed to deal with conduct issues formally and fairly.
