What is a disciplinary?

Disciplinary proceedings are the process of taking formal action against an employee for a breach of the company’s rules or policies. The disciplinary process typically involves a formal investigation, a hearing, and a decision on the appropriate course of action. The outcome of the disciplinary process can range from a written warning to termination of employment, depending on the seriousness of the breach.

Preparing for an impending meeting

If you have been summoned to attend a meeting to discuss your conduct or suspect that you will be, it is a good idea to meet with a solicitor first. You’ll not only be legally prepared, but will also feel calmer and more confident from the moment you walk in.

Whilst the meeting may not be very far away, we can help you be as prepared as possible, which could even help prevent you from being dismissed. We can give you helpful, supportive advice about disciplinary meetings, such as:-

  • what may happen in the meeting;
  • what you should or should not say;
  • what your rights are; and
  • what you should do if the meeting does not go well.
