by , 16 September 2015
Having to discipline your employees can be an absolute nightmare for you! Because if you don't do it correctly, you could have a very time-consuming and costly CCMA case on your hands.

1. It will give you and your employees a framework to work with when dealing with discipline in the workplace. 
 
2. As was stated above, a disciplinary policy will give you the steps required to deal with discipline effectively.
 
3. It will help you ensure you carry out discipline consistently and fairly.
