"There's no escaping problem employees. But with 101 prewritten disciplinary write-ups at a manager's fingertips, there is a way to escape the headaches, anxiety, and potential legal trouble of performance review or counseling sessions.

These ready-to-go documents eliminate the fretful second-guessing about what to do and how to say it. Expertly written, they cover every kind of problem: substandard work quality, absenteeism, insubordination, sexual harassment, e-mail misuse, and more. In addition, readers will find a complete explanation of the entire disciplinary process and (as a last resort) 18 sample termination letters.

The disciplinary process outlined here is not about punishing employees into submission. Rather, it focuses on easing tension, opening up bilateral communications, and providing helpful direction on turning problem performance into positive output. It's a complete toolkit for handling disciplinary problems in a fair, responsible, and legally defensible way."

I just bought the book, downloaded the CD and it is Word 2.0 format, and I can't get the forms into my current Word program.
