If your employer feels that your behaviour has been unacceptable, or you are not performing well, they can start a disciplinary procedure.
A disciplinary can be raised for misconduct, including:
Your employer will have a formal disciplinary process in place.
First of all, they will usually analyse the situation, before inviting you to a meeting. You should be given time to prepare for this meeting and also be made aware that you are entitled to take a colleague or trade union representative in with you.
At the hearing, you must be given the opportunity to respond to the case against you and give your side of the story.
Then, once the meeting is over, you will be informed of the outcome and the next steps. Your employer must give you the opportunity to appeal their decision if you aren’t satisfied with the outcome.
If you are facing disciplinary proceedings at work, our skilled and experienced team of employment law experts can help defend you. We’ll ensure that your employer carries out the disciplinary process properly and we’ll have your back every step of the way.
We can also help if you’ve already been through the disciplinary process. If you don’t feel the process was fair, we can discuss your legal rights and you may be able to bring a claim against your employer.
