When to Sanction Employees and How to Make a Accident at Work Claim
You should be able to sanction employees at any time, if you feel that they have done something deserving of a punishment. However, if you do come down too hard on an employee then you can get a reputation for being difficult to work for, and it can cause problems amongst you and your employees. It is best to only enforce sanctions when you feel that an employee really needs one, to ensure that you come across as tough but fair and that your employees trust and respect you.
- In the case of something dangerous. If an employee is doing something that could injure themselves or others then they must be punished for it. In the worst cases, where an employee is doing something deliberately which could cause harm, it may be worth letting them go.
- In the case of something illegal. You can get into trouble for anything happening illegally in your company, whether you were involved or not. If you find that an employee is doing something illegal then they should be sanctioned or fired, depending on the severity and whether it was deliberate or not.
- In the case of persistent rule breaking. Every company needs to have laws and rules to protect themselves. If an employee persistently flouts these rules then they must be sanctioned in order to get them to step back in line.
- In the case of bullying. Any employee who is bullying another employee, or has exhibited bullying behaviour to customers should be sanctioned. If you have a hard line on bullying then it should be less likely to happen. Take any reports of bullying seriously, and investigate thoroughly.
