Does your organisation have a correct process in place for managing disciplinary issues?
Do you need guidance of experienced Associates to work through these processes?
Did you know that if it goes wrong a personal grievance can cost over $30,000?
Most employers, but definitely not all of them, will follow the correct process required by Employment Relations Act 2000.
The guiding principles in carrying out a disciplinary process are natural justice, fairness, and good faith. This ensures your employees are treated with substantive and procedural fairness – minimising the risks associated with any personal grievance that may arise.
During a disciplinary process, it is often necessary to conduct an investigation. This is where we can help you. We are independent from your business and can therefore conduct a fair and confidential investigation process without interfering with the employment relationship.
“We look forward to being your chosen representative to facilitate a solution which will potentially save your business time and money. We will assist by managing processes, creating practical solutions, and ensuring your actions meet current legislative requirements.”
Two required elements
- Substantive Fairness:
Outcome of the disciplinary process must be fair and reasonable having regard to the performance or behaviour of the employee concerned.
- Procedural Fairness:
The way in which the disciplinary procedure has been carried out should comply with the rules of natural justice.
