What happens to an employee’s continuity of service if he or she is dismissed but reinstated on appeal?
Where an employee is dismissed but reinstated on appeal, should he or she be paid for the time between the dismissal and the successful appeal?
What should an employer take into account in deciding if, and what, disciplinary action is merited?
Is an employer obliged to impose the same disciplinary action where two employees break the same rule?
As a matter of good practice, it is advisable for an employer to ask an employee to sign and return a copy of any letter recording a formal disciplinary warning, so there is a record that he or she has received it. However, there is no requirement for the employee either to acknowledge or to "accept" the warning for it to be valid. It is sufficient for the employer to give the employee a copy of the warning and retain a copy on his or her file.
