Do you have an employee who has broken your company rules or whose performance isn’t up to scratch?
There can be many reasons for taking disciplinary action against an employee, it is important that you properly understand all steps you need to take in order for a disciplinary process to be fair and lawful. You need to follow all the steps to help you protect you from having to defend an unfair dismissal claim at tribunal.
There are many reasons why an employer may want to dismiss an employee and some dismissals can be fair if the employer follows their disciplinary procedure correctly. There are also dismissals, that however well-handled by the employer, will be automatically unfair.
Making sure a disciplinary is fair and balanced can be difficult, the outcome of getting it wrong can be very expensive and in turn your business suffers.
Even though there can be a wealth of evidence against an employee, if a fair process is not followed, it leaves the employer open to the risk of a claim for unfair dismissal.

Most employers will, at some stage, have to deal with misconduct by employees. When doing so, it is important to ensure that a fair procedure is followed. It is also important to act consistently and reasonably in relation to any action that is taken.
Employers should consider not only their own disciplinary procedure before embarking on disciplinary action but also the Acas Code of Practice on disciplinary and grievance procedures (the Acas Code). The Acas Code is intended to provide practical guidance to employers on how to fairly carry out disciplinary procedures for misconduct.
We will explore the circumstances behind the disciplinary issues in detail so that we can guide you step by step through the correct process. Where other options may be more advantageous, we will talk you through all possible outcomes and the associated risks.
We will be there to provide you with disciplinary support no matter how big or small your company.
