Discipline

Do you have employees that you are unhappy with, but that have “clean” records because the concerns have never been reduced to writing?

Did you know that in many cases, a suspension will be a breach of the employee’s rights, even if it is with pay?

The disciplinary tools available to employers in Canada are limited, which can cause substantial frustration. On the one hand, courts often say that summary dismissal is harsh and disproportionate in most situations. But, on the other hand, courts also say that employers generally do not have the right to suspend or demote employees. So what is an employer to do when faced with misconduct that does not warrant dismissal?

How we can help with Employee Discipline

We work with our clients to develop strategic options. This starts with the contracts and policies, which can expand their rights beyond the default at law. Unfortunately, many organizations adopt policies without any strategic consideration. For example, a significant number of disciplinary policies require progressive discipline without allowing any discretion to ensure that “the punishment fits the crime”. If your policy says that a first offence will result in a verbal warning, then you will be in breach of your own policy if you fire someone for assaulting the owner.

We will help you establish effective policies and procedures. When issues arise, we will help you to assess whether discipline is warranted and, if so, how it can be implemented strategically while minimizing potential liability.

We want to be your Trusted Advisor, your Chief HR Law Officer, your business partner. Let us be part of your team, so that we can look after your employment law issues, and you can focus on your business.
