Unsafe Employees: How To Reform Or Terminate Them While Minimizing Your Legal Risks 2/15/2010
Any effective safety and health management program requires discipline and follow-through from both management and workers. Often, however, employers fail to follow through on reforming or terminating unsafe workers, instead just letting them continue to flail along while putting themselves and others at risk.
While the threat of a termination-related lawsuit is undoubtedly sobering, doing nothing is far from an acceptable solution. Failing to act when an unsafe employee ignores safety practices or engages in reckless behaviors can destroy your safety culture. Morale drops, injury risk increases, and you face greater exposure to compliance-related complaints and citations.
