• Disciplinary process

    All disciplinary action for misconduct must be carried out fairly by the employer, or the employee may have grounds to raise a personal grievance.

  • Informal action

    Employers and employees can take informal action to resolve an issue early, especially if the matter is not serious, is a one-off, or is unlikely to happen again.

  • Investigations

    Before taking disciplinary action or responding to a complaint, an employer should find out as much as they can.

  • Warnings

    Where employee misconduct is not serious and does not warrant dismissal, an employer may decide instead to give an employee a warning.

  • Suspension

    An employer may sometimes have to suspend an employee from the workplace.
