A disciplinary procedure is an outline of the steps that will be taken to deal with disciplinary issues at work. This disciplinary procedure sets out what amounts to unsatisfactory behaviour and gross misconduct and explains different stages of the process. This disciplinary policy also explains how investigations and hearings will be conducted and employee rights such as having a companion and appealing decisions.
Show staff that you are a responsible employer with a clear and fair procedure for dealing with disciplinary issues at work using this disciplinary procedure template. Every good employer knows that trust and confidence is a two-way street and that this is helped by having a proper process in place for handling unsatisfactory behaviour, performance or attendance.
Use this dismissal checklist to make sure you’re ticking off all the steps in the disciplinary process.
