How can we discipline employees effectively?

Using progressive discipline, you can take the opportunity presented by an employee's conduct or performance problems to understand the underlying facts, communicate that the company takes the problem seriously, and enlist the employee in coming up with solutions. Done well, progressive discipline is a collaborative process, in which manager and employee work together to resolve workplace problems. And, if progressive discipline fails, you will have laid the groundwork for a legally defensible termination. For learn about the seven steps of effective discipline, see Nolo's article Using Progressive Discipline.
