About the webinar

There are no shortage of employers who have to grapple with disciplinary processes and investigations. However there are also no shortage of employers who fail to meet the complex legal and procedural standards the Employment Relations Authority and Courts expect where disciplinary action is being considered.

This ONDEMAND webinar demystifies the steps employers need to follow when considering disciplinary action, provides a sound understanding of the relevant legal principles, and works through strategies that practitioners and employers can adopt when faced with difficult situations.
