Organisations need to ensure that managers are fully skilled and confident handling the disciplinary issues appropriately. Effective disciplinary procedures operate as a tool to quickly and cheaply resolve issues however they are often perceived as a tool with which to enforce sanctions. Organisations need to ensure that managers are armed with solid working knowledge of the procedures
