Human Resources Guide to Discipline and Termination of Employment, 3rd Edition
Availability: In Stock
$87.00
Description

Discipline and termination of employment are among the most difficult tasks that a human resources professional must face on a day-to-day basis. If an employer imposes discipline, it must be prepared to prove the incident(s) of misconduct took place, that the imposition of discipline was warranted, and that the penalty imposed was reasonable. An employer unable to establish the foregoing could face substantial consequences and liability. This book provides a comprehensive understanding of the relevant legal principles and will enable the employer to effectively utilize the disciplinary procedure, ensuring that employees carry out their assigned work in an orderly, efficient, and productive manner.
