Perform Firing Policy Investigations in a Fair and Objective Manner

The firing policy investigation should be comprehensive to determine all the facts surrounding the violation. Attempt to find witnesses and conduct thorough interviews. Employees must provide any known information related to a policy violation investigation. The employer has the right to obtain such information upon request in determining the facts of the matter.

Members of the IT staff who lie or refuse to give information should be severely disciplined. You should also collect facts through other methods such as surveillance cameras and physical evidence. Do not simply rely on hearsay.

Consider the circumstances of the events that occurred. Were there other work or personal issues that drove the employee to act as he or she did? Is it possible the employee was framed by another devious employee? Who is telling the truth? Is the evidence circumstantial? Was the employee’s performance affected negatively by other uncontrollable factors? The IT manager needs to be very careful that all such aspects of the investigation are considered.

For policy violations that do not require immediate dismissal, apply progressive disciplinebased on documented policies for behavior in a very structured and consistent manner to any computer professional. For serious violations, adhere to standard procedures for terminating employees. Maintain a policy that all IT employees in similar situations are treated fairly and equally without subjective alteration, doing so will ensure a straightforward and objective process. This fairness and objectivity will certainly be noticed by all employees, promote positive acceptance, and ensure due process in a court of law if necessary.
