Facing a Disciplinary Hearing

Being summoned to a disciplinary hearing by your employer can be a highly stressful and unsettling experience.

At Hodge Jones & Allen, we have long-standing expertise of handling disciplinary procedures and our sympathetic employment lawyers can offer you:

  • An expert legal assessment of your case
  • Advice on how to respond to any allegations
  • Help with preparing statements and documentation
  • Ongoing legal representation after any hearing

If your employer wants to initiate disciplinary proceedings, for reasons such as alleged poor performance or misconduct, this can result in serious consequences for the employee. You could be facing dismissal, a written warning, or some other sanction. In such cases, it is essential that you know your rights and obligations. With expertise in employment law, we empower you with this knowledge, and explain all your options, giving recommendations on how to proceed.

In calling you to a disciplinary hearing, your employer is legally required to follow correct procedures, as set out in ACAS Code of Practice on Discipline and Grievances. If the hearing is motivated by or results in bullying, harassment or discrimination, we will advise you of your employment rights.

If your employment is terminated, we will fight hard to protect your position. We have a proud record of success in winning cases for individuals against large, powerful organisations, from finance firms to public bodies. Your ongoing interests are our main concern, and we bring a highly personalised approach to protect your future career and reputation.
