Additional Information

Many company's don't operate a structured approach to the disciplinary process and hence apply a 'Hire and Fire' type arrangement that opens them up to legal implications due to an unfair application of the process. Contrary to belief, business owners cannot make the rules up as they go along as they also are accountable to outside bodies. By following a recognised procedure and recording each step of the process each company should possess sufficient documentation to support it's actions if they experience intervention by tribunal or otherwise.
