HR How-To: Discipline is one of the books in the new CCH® HR How-To Series, which presents the key information you need to know concerning important human resource issues. Delivered in a matter-of-fact, "conversational" style, the Series provides an easy-to-scan listing of typical topics and questions most often asked by HR professionals. The content is explained in easy-to-follow terms, and then demonstrated through "stories" in order to apply the concepts to realistic and familiar workplace settings. The information is intuitively organized by the professional's day-to-day encounter with real-world issues. HR How-To: Discipline covers topics such as how to : create a policy that's right for your workplace; understand the limitations on your right to discipline; document disciplinary actions; and, manage employee challenges to a discipline decision. New in the Second edition are clarifications made by Congress in December 2003 that third-party investigations of employee misconduct are not subject to the notice and consent requirements of the Fair Credit Reporting Act. The book also reflects the new approach under the Fair Labor Standard's Act April 2004 revised regulations to disciplinary wage deductions for exempt employees. These new rules permit unpaid disciplinary suspensions of exempt employees for one or more full days due to serious workplace misconduct, such as a violation of written sexual harassment or workplace violence policies, without risking the employees' qualification as employees exempt from the FLSA's overtime rules. Finally, the National Labor Relations Board again reversed itself and, in June 2004, held that nonunion employees do not have a right to have someone present at an investigatory interview that an employee reasonably expects will result in disciplinary action. Benefits and features include a "What You Need to Know" section where critical must-know issues are presented in a quick fact form and "What-If" scenarios that explore gray areas, providing insights into real-life, challenging situations. Within these scenarios you'll also see: best practices to learn what has worked effectively for others; worst case scenarios often the most effective way to learn; what went wrong for others and how to avoid the same results; strategies for communicating information to your workforce, including samples, case studies, graphical representations, mnemonics, and more; checklists that summarize the information most useful to your HR work; step-by-step how-to's; self audits; and, quizzes to measure retention of material learned.
