Conducting disciplinary proceedings can be challenging and stressful for all concerned and you will be aware that a potentially minor mistake or breach can lead to a finding of unfair dismissal. We are able to guide you through the process, either in an advisory capacity, or by coming in house and managing it on your behalf.
Whether your employee has been underperforming, committing persistent breaches of their terms (such as lateness or attendance), it is always advisable to follow a fair and formal disciplinary procedure.
