You may have your HR policies and contracts in order, but do you have an effective code of discipline aligned with the labor laws? This is a separate document that should forms part of your HR best practices.

An HR Code of Discipline defines what penalties employees are accountable for incase they violate the rules. When you do this right, you can fully enforce your rules without conflict or dispute with your employees. This is one of the most effective ways to prevent people problems, discipline erring employees, and professionalize your workforce.

In this special one-day training, we will teach you how to design and craft your code of discipline the right way. We'll provide you with ready-made templates so you can easily create one for your company. You can save so much money in consulting a lawyer. And if you have a code of discipline already, attending this seminar will allow you to validate it if it is still updated with the recent changes in the labor laws!
