Slater & Gordon Lawyers offer advice and assistance throughout the workplace disciplinary process, including preparation for the hearing and analysis of your case and how to respond, as well as bringing related claims for unfair dismissal or discrimination where necessary, or negotiating any termination of employment.
As you cannot generally bring your own lawyer to a disciplinary hearing, for those who work in non-unionised environments we offer a unique service Executive Reps. This provides you with an experienced companion who can attend your disciplinary hearing, make representations on your behalf and provide you with much-needed psychological support.
The way a disciplinary hearing is run varies from employer to employer and can be anything from a simple meeting to a mini-trial with the company lawyers in attendance.
Being summoned to a disciplinary hearing can be distressing. There is a risk that the hearing could result in dismissal, a formal warning that the employee must improve, or some kind of sanction being taken. The right legal representation and support can make a big difference to the outcome.
Slater & Gordon Lawyers offer advice and assistance if you have a grievance at work. This could include drafting of the initial grievance, guidance and negotiation, attendance at the hearing, help with preparation for the hearing, analysis of the grievance response and dealing with any appeal or subsequent tribunal claim.
Employees who submit a written grievance should be invited to a grievance hearing by their employer to discuss in more detail the complaints raised in writing. This can be daunting for many employees, but others see it as an opportunity to make their concerns heard.
