On hearing problems from clients it is quite obvious that workplace disputes become very personal and heated and the employer loses sight of treating the problem objectively.
Additionally several small issues build up into something much larger. Employees who have regular ‘sickies’, are sloppy about timekeeping and ‘demand’ instead of request holidays seem to be top of the list in getting employers to see ‘red’.
Remember the saying ‘a stitch in time saves nine?’
If an employee begins to fall out of line don’t wait for the 4th/5th/6th time. Start a disciplinary process early and nip it in the bud.
Remember disciplinary processes are designed to highlight the problem to the employee and hopefully lead to improvement. Yes, this may not happen but if you use the disciplinary process early then you get to a point of being able to dismiss ‘a bad apple’ before you go ‘bananas’.
