Many businesses do find it difficult to dismiss a member of staff with the fear of facing employment tribunal action always at the back of the mind. It is no longer acceptable to terminate a contract of employment just by the form of a letter it is vital for your business to follow a set disciplinary procedure within your organisation to help you avoid litigation. The ACAS Code of Practice on Disciplinary and Grievance Procedures sets out guidelines to businesses of all sizes to ensure that organisations do not unlawfully dismiss a member of staff. The team at Michael Lewin Solicitors will be able to help you create a highly bespoke disciplinary procedure and also assist in the dismissal process to ensure that your business stays fully compliant with UK law. A common disciplinary procedure that many organisations follow is:
? A verbal warning – if an employee has acted badly with an organisation then a verbal warning is usually required about the issue.
? The first written warning – if this employee does not amend the issue that you first verbally raised then a written warning can be provided to this employee.
? A final written warning – if the issue is no longer solved within your organisation then you can send a final written warning to the employee. You may also wish to invite this employee to a disciplinary hearing to discuss the issues. During the disciplinary hearing the employee is entitled to have someone with them such as a fellow colleague or a trade union representative.
? The dismissal – if the issues continue within the organisation then you can consider dismissing the member of staff. Many organisations do this in a meeting and during this meeting again the employee is allowed to be accompanied. Both in the disciplinary hearing and in the dismissal process you must give the employee the opportunity to appeal.
