Disciplinary Procedures

Disciplinaries is the legal term used for Disciplinary Procedures from your employer against you. Your employer could start formal disciplinary action against you if they have concerns about your work, conduct or absence. Before taking formal disciplinary action or dismissing you, your employer may try to raise the matter informally with you. However, they can go straight to their formal disciplinary or dismissal procedures. Disciplinary procedures are a set way for an employer to deal with disciplinary issues. They should include a disciplinary hearing where you’re given a chance to explain your side of the story.

At Aeris Employment Law we have many years experience in working with employees on issues around disciplinaries. Based in Solihull and operating across Birmingham and the West Midlands we are situated in a prime location to service many employees across hundreds of companies.

At the workplace

All workplaces should have well-defined disciplinary and grievance procedures so that employees know what is expected of them, they are all subject to the same rules and regulations, and they also know how to raise complaints themselves if it becomes necessary.

If your employer has an issue with your conduct, performance or capability, they should discuss this with you when the issue first arises, or as soon as possible afterwards. If you find yourself in this position, make sure you note everything that happens, including dates, times, places and who is involved.

Where an employer takes a more formal approach, you should be told in writing what the issues are, how you are expected to rectify them and what action your employer proposes to take. No formal action should be taken against you before the situation has been investigated.
