Alternative Discipline and Federal Employees: Creating Win-Win Solutions

Price: $280.50


Presented by Peter Broida and William Wiley

Discover creative ways to deal with problem employees — and spend less time defending disciplinary actions.

Traditional discipline procedures are complex and demoralizing to the employee — not to mention fraught with legal pitfalls for the agency. But there are creative ways to resolve workplace issues without resorting to the ever-troublesome statutory termination procedures.

Learn more constructive — less destructive — discipline approaches for problem employees, from two of the most respected experts in federal employment law. In 90 fast-paced minutes, Peter Broida and William Wiley detail win-win discipline methods that avoid the risk of having a disciplinary action reversed on appeal, while simultaneously causing minimal disruption to the workplace.

You learn the ins and outs of powerful alternatives to discipline, including:

  • Last-chance agreements
  • Abeyance agreements
  • Community service options
  • Leave donation in lieu of suspension
  • Constructive misconduct-related job assignments
  • Mediation

Plus, you gain Broida’s and Wiley’s expert guidance on how to:

  • Legally present the option of voluntary resignation rather than termination — and avoid a finding of “constructive termination” and reinstatement with back pay
  • Craft discipline options that add value to co-workers and the workplace
  • Use mediation to resolve conflicts in a mutually agreeable manner
  • And more!
