Introduction

This half-day course is designed for senior managers and HR professionals who are required to chair disciplinary and appeal hearings.

The way in which disciplinary, and appeal, hearings are conducted is one of the most scrutinised processes during claims of unfair dismissal at Employment Tribunals. Figures released by the Ministry of Justice for the 2019 Financial year show that 90% of claims that were heard by an Employment Tribunal were successfully won by the complainant (employee).

These figures illustrate how important it is to conduct a fair and reasonable hearing and provide a proportionate response.
