assist employees in correcting problems or behaviors in the workplace. Managers
and supervisors are responsible for recommending appropriate disciplinary action if
a problem is not corrected. Recognizing the difficulty this area of human resource
administration presents for supervisors and managers, as well as the increasing
emphasis on employee rights, this workshop has been developed to assist
supervisors and managers in understating the basic principles of discipline, including
their role and responsibility in the disciplinary process. Further, this workshop will
assist supervisors and managers in investigating and attempting to resolve disputes,
whether grieved or appealed pursuant to statutes, or pursuant to a collective
bargaining agreement. This presentation will help participants:

      Understand the role discipline plays in good HR management;

      Avoid potential problems when disciplinary actions are contemplated;

      Understand the statutory requirements which apply to Career Service
       employees when disciplinary actions are taken; and

      Understand the types of grievances and appeals afforded to employees when
       discipline is imposed.
