Managing discipline - Investigation to possible dismissal: A guide

Investigate the problem

Managing discipline - Do this first: Look into the problem

Do you feel that you know enough about the problem?

After the investigation, you may feel it best to try again with a quiet word.

Some problems come down to misunderstandings and can be cleared up informally while reminding staff about the company rules.

However, if that doesn't work and you still need to continue, go to Next stage: Meet the employee and talk it through.
