Original Text: Employee Discipline


This week?s presentations in class illustrates why employee discipline play a crucial role to ensure that individuals adhere to the rules and regulations of the workplace. Unfortunately, today employees are violating rules and regulations at the workforce. As stated in our textbook, ?For example, some employees are habitually late to work, ignore safety procedures, neglect the details required for the job, act rude to customers, or engage in unprofessional conduct with coworkers, (P. 454). Overall these examples are serious violations that will damage a company?s reputation.
Several years ago, I remember a young minority man got arrested for selling drugs and carrying a loaded gun at work. This explains why there was a performance issues at the workforce. Several employees including lawyers were actually getting high on the job, endangering the safety of other employees and clients. Apparently, an anonymous informant informed security that this person was selling drugs at work. After further investigation, security found a loaded gun in his employee locker. Clearly, this type of unprofessional conduct lead to further discipline actions by terminating other employees who purchase drugs from him at work.
The majority of the organizations today, have zero tolerance for minor and serious violations. Since 1980?s, many organizations turn a blind eye and fail to enforce employee discipline for those unprofessional employees who bully other employees, drug use and violated safety rules at the workforce. In my opinion, implementing a positive employee discipline would have reduced the past unprofessional conduct, whereas today we are hearing fewer allegations of employees abusing rules and regulations at work.

This week's presentations in class illustrate why employee discipline plays a crucial role to ensure that individuals adhere to the rules and regulations of the workplace. Unfortunately, today employees are violating rules and regulations at the workplace. As stated in our textbook, for example, some employees are habitually late to work, ignore safety procedures, neglect the details required for the job, act rudely to customers, or engage in unprofessional conduct with coworkers, (P. 454). Overall these examples are serious violations that can damage a company's reputation.

I remember several years ago, a young minority man was arrested for selling drugs and carrying a loaded gun at work. This explains why there were performance issues in the workforce. Several employees, including lawyers, were actually getting high on the job, endangering the safety of other employees and clients. Apparently, an anonymous informant informed security that a person was selling drugs at work. After further investigation, security found a loaded gun in his employee locker. Clearly, this type of unprofessional conduct would lead to further disciplinary actions, the terminating of other employees who purchased drugs from him at work.

The majority of organizations today have zero tolerance for minor and serious violations. Since the 1980's, many organizations had turned a blind eye and failed to enforce employee discipline for those unprofessional employees who bullied other employees, used drugs and violated safety rules at the workplace.

In my opinion, implementing a positive employee discipline would have reduced the past unprofessional conduct, whereas today we are hearing fewer allegations of employees abusing rules and regulations at work.
