Do you have an employee whom you want to discipline? Dealing with any disciplinary process, from a small issue to a gross misconduct allegation, can be costly, time consuming and will be disruptive to your business.
Most employers will have some kind of disciplinary policy and procedure, which will provide and enable for an employee to be suspended on full pay whilst a disciplinary investigation against them is underway.
Employees should be offered the opportunity to appeal against the outcome of the disciplinary hearing, this is according to the ACAS Code of practice, and the employer should inform the employee of their options.
