If you find yourself the subject of a disciplinary investigation then we can help you respond and prepare to give you the best chance of getting the outcome you want. We know how stressful being involved in a disciplinary investigation and hearing can be - especially if you think you are not to blame and your job is on the line.

I am facing a disciplinary investigation. Can you help me?

All employers should follow a fair procedure to avoid a complaint to an Employment Tribunal though minor conduct issues can usually be resolved by an informal discussion. A record will be kept on your personnel file but informal warnings ought to be ignored if there is a formal disciplinary hearing for something different later on.

If the allegations are more serious, your employer may look to follow a formal disciplinary route. The disciplinary and dismissal procedure is largely defined by the Acas Code of Practice. Although the Code is not legally binding, Tribunals will take it into account when considering if a dismissal was fair and can increase damages by up to 25% if the employer fails to follow it without justification. Similarly, if an employee breaches the Code by not appealing a dismissal or fails without justification to raise a grievance in a claim of constructive dismissal, damages can be reduced by up to 25%.

How can you help me through the disciplinary process?

Our team of employment law solicitors and HR professionals can help you practice and prepare for any meetings and make sure you and your employer follow the Acas Code. We will give you a straight answer about your chances of success should the investigation proceed to a disciplinary hearing. We will also help you with an appeal against any disciplinary sanction and advise on whether a dismissal was unfair.

If you prefer, we can help negotiate an exit from the business on the best terms possible.
