Managing Disciplinary Processes

Handling disciplinary issues fairly and efficiently is something that many companies struggle with.

Some companies unfortunately do not delve enough into the detail at the investigatory stage of a disciplinary process and so their decision is ultimately judged as flawed. With our in depth knowledge and experience of dealing with disciplinary procedures, we can help you to ask the right questions from the start and give an objective view. We will then advise you on the risks associated with each possible sanction, ranging from a warning to dismissal, so that you can make an informed decision.

As well as advising you how to conduct the process properly, we can also provide on-site support and even chair the hearing on your behalf. This has proved to be a very valuable service to our clients who often find themselves too close to the issue or not experienced enough to conduct a fair and impartial hearing.

In addition to advice and on-site support we will provide you with the following documentation:

  • Confirmation of suspension letter (where required);
  • Invite to disciplinary hearing letter setting out detailed allegations;
  • Outcome to disciplinary hearing;
  • Invite to disciplinary appeal hearing;
  • Outcome to disciplinary appeal hearing.

If you would like advice and support about how to manage disciplinary issues, please give our team a call and we will be happy to help you.
