Managing Misconduct in the Workplace

All organisations have expectations around the level of conduct they expect from their employees and managers have a responsibility to deal with any breaches of conduct in a fair, consistent and timely manner.

It is also important to ensure that if any disciplinary action is contemplated against an employee that a fair process, which is in line with the statutory ACAS code of practice is followed to protect the organisation from any litigation claims. Before any sanction can be imposed there must have been an investigation into the allegations, the employee must have been given the opportunity to respond, any sanction must be confirmed in writing and the employee given the opportunity to appeal the decision.
