Can your business afford to lose between $15,600 and $62,400 every time you hire the wrong employee? According to Gallup that’s what it could cost every time a fulltime employee earning $15.00 an hour leaves either voluntarily, or for cause. This figure does not take into account other potential issues, such as, legal costs if the employee sues for wrongful termination.
Progressive discipline (PD) is the process that works to correct an employee’s poor performance or behavior through constructive and formal feedback to their behavior. This may include a series of formal documented steps. Including but not limited to verbal counseling, counseling, written warning, possibly a performance improvement plan, and as a last resort, a complete dismissal from employment. Other than these there are various ancillary components to this process that would be discussed at length.
