Small business owners cannot afford a dedicated human resources department. Most HR departments are spinning in tight circles constantly reinventing disciplinary letters and procedures. This is where employee disciplinary process software comes in with much needed solutions.

Especially small business owners either find themselves directly involved, or one of their valuable managers taking care of these matters. The task of employee discipline is usually a hot potato that is passed around which leaves business highly vulnerable when real delicate issues arise. If your organisations disciplinary actions vary from one employee to the next, you are treading on dangerous legal ground. What solutions are available to you?

Once uploaded into your computer, you have several standard forms, letters and processes to use for the various HR related procedures in your organisation. This is the first important step that allows everyone involved to be on the same page.

There’s no skirting the issue of being adequately knowledgeable on the subject. Employee disciplinary process software does not replace expertise, rather it helps the expert work through matters faster and more confidently.
The software kit contains templates and other resources that allow you to consistently apply a streamlined process. These resources include disciplinary form templates such as, disciplinary notices, disciplinary action forms, and employee probation agreements. Full guidelines to standardise these tools are provided so that your organisation has a well-defined process.

Further templates for the first and second warning letters and the final letter are given. Termination policy outlines as well as termination form templates are provided.

Employee disciplinary process software goes a long way towards allowing you the small business owner and your managers to concentrate on the core business operations. In HR departments it reduces the amount of physical documentation that needs to be in place. All in all the software addresses an essential facet of HR management, which is unavoidable and a must for any progressive organization or business.
