Workplace Disciplinary Actions Legal Advice Solicitors

When an employer dismisses an employee, the employer must be able to show that that there were fair grounds for the dismissal and that fair procedures were followed. The Workplace Relations Commission’s Code of Practice: Grievance and Disciplinary Procedures states that employers should have written grievance and disciplinary procedures. Disciplinary procedures set out the stages and process employers should follow in relation to alleged shortcomings of an employee.

The procedures call for informal warnings, written warnings and ultimately dismissal. Under the Unfair Dismissals Acts, employers are required to give employees written notice of the procedures to be followed before dismissal. This must be done within 28 days of entering the contract of employment.

Tully Rinckey labour and employment law solicitors are available to assist with drafting fair investigation and dismissal procedures and assist when investigations are challenged by employees.
