It is critical that all employees required to manage a suspected breach of the policy (for example, managers and supervisors) are clear on the requirements and are skilled in handling this type of situation.
Sometimes, policies are not properly applied because of misunderstandings about the effect of the policy or due to a lack of confidence on the part of the managers required to apply them. This may lead to inconsistencies in practice within the workplace and perceived inequities in the handling of situations. Such weaknesses may also lead to successful challenges to disciplinary action or dismissal of employees resulting from breaches of the policy.
