Course Summary:The vast majority of citizen complaints and internal acts of employee misconduct encountered by government agencies are generated by a small number of problem individuals. It is crucial, therefore, that government agencies can successfully discipline these few “bad apples”.
In other cases, disciplinary action is necessary to hold essentially good employees accountable for misconduct that threatens agency operations. In these cases, making discipline stick is actually in the interest of the employee, as it can serve as a much needed “wake up call” to an employee before performance issues become so serious that termination is required or public safety is threatened.
Unfortunately, research has revealed that when disciplinary actions are reviewed by an outside source (i.e., grievance arbitrator or civil service board), the employer’s discipline is overturned or reduced about half of the time.
This course covers the findings of a DCG study of hundreds of public employee discipline cases that went to arbitration review. This course reveals the five most common reasons arbitrators give for overturning a public agency’s employee discipline. This information is utilized to provide practical steps public employers can take to ensure fairness in their disciplinary processes and significantly increase the likelihood their disciplinary decisions are upheld.
This course is designed for anyone responsible for investigating or disciplining employee misconduct within a government agency, from first-line supervisors to human resources personnel to agency leaders.
