    New personnel for an old warehouse

    The issue is actually lack of security due to policies and neglect of existing personnel. Obviously, the warehouse needs an overhaul but the problem is the labor law that provides security of tenure to the workers. Even if the policies are changed, it may not be effective if the same people remain. What can you suggest?

    Terminating workers job without any good reason is just ushering the heat of labor law to your company because you are definitely going to be sued and found guilty in the process. My question why even bother to dismiss your long serving worker especially when he or she is loyal to the job? It would take long time to get a new worker up to speed on how things are done. If there is anything like security concerns, it's best to have the workers transfered to new department and have everything under control.

    Well, management is obviously sleeping on their job. It's not the warehouse workers who create company and warehouse policies, that's the work of the management.If these employees' negligence, omission, or willful violation of company policies is compromising warehouse safety and security, the company has every right to commence due process. The labor laws do not prevent management from dismissing employees who are habitually negligent and whose actions are placing the company at risk as long as they observe due process.These should all be covered by the Company Rules and Regulations.
    When it comes to labor laws, management is always careful with terminating employees because the company may be sued. As they say, it is a pain in the neck if you have negligent workers but it surely is not wise to terminate them unless you have solid grounds for dismissing the erring employee. That is the atmosphere of labor here that is why the unions are very vocal with their demands particularly if they know that the company is earning good profit.

    It's hard to suggest anything without a little more background on the situation. My first question would probably be why do you need new personnel in the first place and what's wrong with the employees you have in there now? From time to time every business will need to recruit new employees, but there is usually a reason behind that, and I'm not sure that just sacking all the current staff and replacing them with new just for the sake of it is an option that any business owner can just make without a valid reason.

    I think the reason you need new personnel in a old warehouse needs to be examined before any of us can point you in any direction.
