Misconduct and Dismissals

Theft, bullying and lateness – these all constitute examples of misconduct/serious misconduct in the workplace. If they happened in your business would you know how to address them?

Get the process for managing a disciplinary matter wrong and, as the employer, you could be faced with a personal grievance or worse still liable to pay penalties – learn how to avoid this situation.

When employees misbehave, there is a clear process to follow to protect your business’s reputation – getting it right is crucial for safeguarding against any legal liability.

Our session will cover:

  • The link between employment agreements, company policies and misconduct
  • The different types of misconduct and serious misconduct
  • The steps to manage a disciplinary process, including investigations and giving warnings
  • What you need to know about dismissing employees

Facilitator: Alicia Meyer, Senior HR Consultant
After beginning my career as a Personal Assistant, I took the opportunity to combine my administrative skills with my passion for people, and my career in HR began. With a National Diploma in Human Resource Management and 7 years’ experience in HR and recruitment, I’ve enjoyed building up a breadth of knowledge working in a number of medium to large organisations in New Zealand. I was drawn to the POD philosophy and am excited to be part of a positive, results-focused culture.
