Respecting Team Members’ Rights in Disciplinary Processes Board members, coaches and volunteers in sport organizations are sometimes faced with the unpleasant task of imposing disciplinary sanctions on their members who breached the code of conduct. This webinar will focus on the key elements necessary to ensure a sound disciplinary process to deal with inappropriate behavior on the part of participants from any sport  organization. From a code of conduct that provides clear guidance to team members on expected behavior, to the respect of the principles of natural justice in the decision process to determine appropriate sanctions, the webinar will explain how to discipline unruly members in a fair manner in order to reduce the risks of their decisions being appealed or challenged in civil courts. This webinar will also recommend ways in which a sport organization can be better prepared to address these situations effectively. Register here!
