If the HR & OD Director agrees that there is a case for considering disciplinary action, the Trainee will be required to attend a disciplinary hearing. As all with all Employees, Trainees have a statutory right to bring representation to the formal disciplinary hearing; the Representative must be made aware that it is a hearing that may result in action being taken or confirmed against the Trainee. A Manager that has had no previous involvement in the case will be accompanied by a Representative from the HR & OD Directorate. The HR Representative will also have had no prior involvement in the case.
Further guidance on conducting a Formal Disciplinary hearing can be found within Appendix B of the Disciplinary Policy..
