I have been looking for a long time for generic or specific job competencies for jobs in the country. E.g. the job competencies and skills needed for a PA, Security Guard, Finance Clerk, etc to do their jobs effectively.

When compiling a written warning or notification to attend a disciplinary it is extremely important that the charges are correctly formulated.
Theft is a prime example: to charge the employee with “theft” is not sufficient and additional charges must be incorporated. The reason we address other things relating to the theft is that it is not always proven in a disciplinary hearing that the act of “theft” was complete and the employee is then found not guilty.
