How to Deal With Employee Insubordination Employee insubordination can cause problems with other employees in the same company. It can lead to a drop of departmental morale and it could give the impression that the manager is losing control over employees. Reacting emotionally will not really help and can in fact lead you into making the wrong decision. There are steps you can take to deal with employee insubordination. 1. Review the record of the employee involved and check if he has a history of this kind of conduct. If he doesn’t have history, evaluate the case to determine if there may be a primary cause of this poor behaviour. If there’s a history then consider applying company discipline. 2. Discuss the case in the office of the human resources to figure out probable options. If after further study and you feel that a talk with the employee would be beneficial, then a disciplinary action would not be needed. However, an employee who displays insubordination habitually may need to


be reprimanded. Work with the human resources in making suitable paper work for disciplinary measures for such behaviour. 3. Meet with the employee to discuss the case and have a representative from the human resource office present during the meeting. 4. Discuss the case with the employee and determine the cause of such misconduct. Stay professional in your tone, words, and actions at all times.Try not to be emotional. Otherwise, the situation might get worse. 5. Implement the solution which you feel is best.If both of you have come to a good agreement, ask the human resource representative to take note, file it, and then close the issue. If the employee resists on responding professionally to the conversation, then disciplinary actions based on the human resource guidelines may be necessary.
