This program is designed to provide your managers, supervisors and HR practitioners with an easily digestible outline of the various legal obligations they need to be aware of when managing performance and conduct issues.  Building on this foundation, the program will equip your leaders to deal with poor performance and misconduct on disciplinary issues to minimise the risk of successful claims being made against your business.

There is so much legislation that impacts on a company’s ability to discipline or dismiss staff. Many managers and supervisors avoid dealing with poor performance and misconduct because they do not know what they can do or they fear getting it wrong or, being accused of bullying.

Upon completion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the legal risks in managing performance and conduct issues, including unfair dismissal, adverse action, unlawful discrimination and workplace bullying
  • Determine what constitutes reasonable management action in the context of performance management and disciplinary action
  • Apply a procedurally fair disciplinary process
  • Conduct a disciplinary meeting
  • Implement disciplinary outcomes, including dismissal
  • Undertake best practice in relation to record keeping
  • Draft warning and termination of employment letters

Case studies, role plays, and practical tasks are an integral component of the program to ensure participants get the most out of the day.

Disciplinary template letters are included in the course materials.

Note: Ai Group advocates a three-stage process for dealing with underperformance:

(1)  Giving effective feedback;

(2)  Utilising a performance improvement process; and

(3)  Disciplinary action.

This program covers stage (3) of that process. Although it is a stand-alone program, participants will benefit from also attending our full-day Performance Coaching and Improvement program which covers stages (1) and (2).
