In Active Agenda, corrective actions are disciplinary measures taken to correct behavior.
Today's organizations are faced with the need to take corrective action (also known as disciplinary action) to modify behavior. Taking corrective action can be essential to business success but it can also result in additional risk. Applying inconsistent corrective action can result in unnecessary employment practice liabilities (i.e. sexual harassment, discrimination, etc.), which ultimately result in unnecessary conflict, litigation, and cost.
A common failing of this business practices is the lack of a centralized database to track the performance of corrective activity. Active Agenda helps businesses to centralize corrective action tracking and measurement activities and reduce costs associated with variability. Active Agenda can help implementers to establish standard corrective practices across an enterprise using existing employee handbooks, policies, and procedures while helping organizations to maintain consistency and prompt explanations for inconsistency.
Corrective SituationsA corrective situation is a behavior or practice that is prohibited by policy. Corrective situations are often defined within an employee handbook. Corrective situations must be establish in order to take a corrective action.
Corrective Situation Types
Corrective actions often result in administrative law complaints. Identifying your corrective actions by type will substantially improve your ability to summarize and analyze your risk for inconsistent employment practice complaints. You can add or modify corrective situation types directly within the Corrective Situation Types module or by clicking the ( ) symbol next to the Situation Type field within the Corrective Situations module.
sub module edit form is used to add central submodule records. The following central submodules are associated with the Corrective Situation Types module:
Corrective PracticesA corrective practice is a prescribed disciplinary policy. Corrective practices are typically associated with a list of invoking situations and are usually progressive in nature. Active Agenda uses a list of corrective situations and assigned practices to guide you in the taking of corrective actions. Advance stipulation of corrective practices can help an organization avoid inconsistent, and potentially discriminatory, corrective actions.
sub module edit form is used to add central submodule records. The following central submodules are associated with the Corrective Actions module:
sub module edit form is used to associate the module records. We attempt to make logical associations between modules, but we know we may have missed a few. Please let us know if you identify an association we missed! The Corrective Actions module permits the following associations:
- Agreement Associations
- Corrective Actions Associations
- Hazard Associations
- Regulation Associations
- Risk Financing Associations
- Standard Associations
- Values Associations
Corrective Action Associationsincident report). Active Agenda uses association modules to achieve this. We attempt to make logical associations between modules, but we know we may have missed a few. Please let us know if you identify an association we may have missed!
Global modules allow you to associate common types of information with nearly all of Active Agenda's modules. Global module records can be associated at the module level (e.g., Actions associated with Corrective Actions) and the record level (e.g., Actions associated with the Zahlis Discipline for too many hours). The following global module records are available for association with the Corrective Actions module:
ActionsUse the Actions screen to assign follow-up actions related to the Corrective Actions module (i.e., Consider interviewing Zahlis' coworkers to determine if he always exceeds maximum working hours). All actions are saved to a centralized location where you can quickly assess the status of actions assigned throughout the organization.
AttachmentsAssociate digital files (e.g., scans of Zahlis' time sheets) with the Corrective Actions module in the Attachments screen. All attachments are saved to a centralized location where you can quickly filter and locate items attached to records.
CostsAccess the Costs screen to associate costs with the Corrective Actions module (e.g., Upgrades to the time clock that disallow time recording after a stipulated maximum, per person.). All costs are saved to a centralized location so you can quickly assess the Total Cost of Risk and/or filter costs by a variety of parameters.
LinksAccess the Links screen to associate links with the Corrective Actions module (e.g., http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disciplinary_procedure). All links are saved to a centralized location where you can quickly access them by filtering on a variety of parameters.
NotesUse the Notes screen to associate notes with the Corrective Actions module (i.e., We should consider removing the maximum hour policy.). All notes are saved to a centralized location where you can quickly access them by filtering on a variety of parameters.
Notification ListThe Notifications List screen allows you to establish a list of people to include in notifications. Notifications are sent manually by email and contain the contents of the Corrective Actions module View screen. Additional recipients can be added to a notification list on an ad hoc basis when a notification is sent. Notifications are sent using the Notify screen located on the View and Edit screens.
Your installation of Active Agenda will include master data files to get you started. These lists are provided as suggestions. Please verify that the lists make sense for your organization. You can view the list modules and code types used by the Access Requests module by clicking the "expand" links below. Submodule specific list modules may be listed above and identified with the list module icon . The Code Types table allows you to sort code types by: Code ID, Code Title, or by the module where the codes can be found.
