When there is a potential breach of policy or agreement by the employee, depending on the level of severity, disciplinary action may be required, up to and including dismissal.
Following a fair and transparent process from the outset is crucial, to reduce the success of any personal grievance that the employee may raise in response. A good disciplinary process comprises of a thorough and impartial investigation, the opportunity for the employee to tell their version of events and respond to the allegations, noting that meetings must be held with reasonable notice and the offer of a support person.
