THE SEMINAR HAS TWO COMPONENTS
Day 1: Progressive Discipline - Optimizing employee conduct and performance without infringing labour law
Learn how to implement day-to-day discipline with confidence and expertise that promotes employee respect for management rules, reduces disciplinary hearings and minimizes losses at the CCMA, bargaining councils and Labour Court.
Days 2: Preparing for Disciplinary Hearings - Developing the highly complex skill of preparing your case
The chairperson of a disciplinary hearing is not allowed to find the employee guilty or to fire him unless you, as the prosecutor/complainant, provide sufficient and clear proof that the employee is guilty of an offence serious enough to merit dismissal. If the employee is fired without such proof then the CCMA or bargaining council can reinstate the employee with full back pay.
It is therefore essential for all managers and officials who prosecute at disciplinary hearings to develop the highly complex skill of preparing the evidence necessary to prove the case against the employee.
