Week 10 Discussion
“Employee Discipline and Bargaining Practices”
Create one (1) progressive discipline policy using one (1) disciplinary issue (e.g., tardiness, unauthorized absence, sleeping on duty, gambling during working hours, discourteous conduct, failure to observe safety rules, failure to report accident, etc.). Provide a rationale for your response. Note: The policy must focus on the correction in two (2) ways: 1) by impressing on the employee the seriousness of repeated rule infractions and 2) by providing the employee with opportunities to correct his or her behavior before applying the ultimate penalty of discharge.
Select two (2) key differences of private sector and public sector bargaining. Determine the manner in which the differences work in favor for the constituencies they represent. Provide one (1) example of private sector bargaining and one (1) example of public sector bargaining that support your response.
