Employee misconduct: discipline or prevention.

Academic Article


  • Discipline is something that can only be imposed after an act of misconduct has already occurred, but managers can use strategies to prevent misconduct before it occurs. When an act of employee misconduct does occur, supervisors should know how to deal with the situation effectively. Management training and knowledge of appropriate administration of discipline will greatly enhance the probability that undesirable behaviors are changed and that when termination of employment becomes necessary, arbitration and litigation will not suspend, reduce, or reverse management's decisions.
