The most problems supervisors encounter among employees are absenteeism, tardiness, insubordination alcohol and drug abuse, workplace violence, and theft. Discipline, which is used to prevent employees from breaking rules and to quickly bring about a change in behavior, must be applied in a constructive way also. Before administering discipline, supervisors need to have a clear understanding of the situation by knowing all the facts. Supervisors must be careful to motivate and correct rather than to generate hostility and resentment. Supervisors must: follow organizational procedures, union requirements, and laws regarding fair employment practices.
