A video guide
In this series of 7 videos we guide you through each stage of the disciplinary process, finishing with the penalties you may face if you get a step wrong.
It is often the case that whilst your decision to discipline or dismiss an employee is ‘reasonable’ if you came to that conclusion at the end of a faulty process you could still end up on the wrong side of a tribunal decision.
Now you have a general overview lets look in more detail at the investigation – as this is the foundation of the entire exercise, taking the time to get this right will pay dividends
Should you suspend an employee whilst you investigate the misconduct? If so, for how long and do you pay them? What does suspending them imply to the employee and your other staff?
After carrying out a thorough investigation, you have progressed to a formal disciplinary hearing. How do they differ and what must you do?
Your employee has appealed against the decision you made after the hearing. How is this different from the disciplinary hearing?
So finally, why should you follow this process? Because if you don’t you could end up with an expensive and time consuming tribunal case.
