In our litigious society, it has become more and more important for managers and supervisors to know how to document and discipline employees to avoid law suits and manage employee performance effectively. In this session, veteran training professionals Judi Clements will give managers a “crash course” in safe, legal, and effective disciplinary practices and documentation. You will learn how to separate poor performance from poor attitude, counsel employees, and write performance improvement plans. You will learn how to keep a legal performance log to document both good and substandard performance and implement discipline with confidence and accuracy.

After attending this session, you will learn how to discipline and document effectively and legally – to utilize discipline as a performance management tool for improving employee performance, and to protect managers and organizations from adverse legal action when possible. You will also learn to utilize clear documentation and disciplinary strategies that will protect you, your organization, and your department, as well as improve the overall productivity of your employees.

Judi will discuss how to nip performance problems early before they escalate, document them properly, and deal with terminations. You will learn the value of fair and consistent discipline and how it impacts your employees and your organization.
