What is it?
The 'Stage 4 Appeal Letter’ is an employee communication from the company.
When would you use it?
You would use the 'Stage 4 Appeal Letter’ to inform the employee that the company has received their appeal. The letter provides all the necessary information to attend and what to prepare for.
Why would you use it?
You would use the 'Stage 4 Appeal Letter’ to ensure that you operate the absence management procedure in a recognised format and document each step of the process in case of tribunal or appeal.
Many company's don't operate a structured approach to the absence management procedure 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.
