Disciplinary Action Procedures

All businesses are required to follow a minimum statutory disciplinary procedure. All too often companies do not follow procedures correctly and find themselves with a tribunal lodged against them.

The statutory employee disciplinary procedure states that disciplinarians need to be reasonable and comply with the following disciplinary procedure outline:

  • Application and scope including a prompt, fair and consistent process.
  • Principles such as investigation, confidentiality, and right to be accompanied.
  • Disciplinary hearings must have the correct preparation and conduct throughout.
  • Outcome must use the correct form of disciplinary sanction.
  • The right for employees to appeal.
