Disciplinary policy toolkit

The disciplinary policy toolkit for managers has been designed to interpret the disciplinary policy and procedure, which should always take precedence over the toolkit.  It aims to provide more detail on how the policy should be implemented and to guide managers through what can be a difficult process.  Please read through this before seeking further professional advice from HR Operations. 

The guidance notes contained in the toolkit are not mandatory but are intended to assist with promoting best practice in managing disciplinary matters.

The expectation is that the provisions contained in the disciplinary policy and procedure will be adhered to. It is important to remember that tribunals have upheld complaints of unfair dismissal for management failure to follow procedure.
