Dismiss an employee for misconduct

Key points

  • Where, following a disciplinary hearing, the employer decides that the employee's misconduct merits dismissal, it should inform the employee of this, and confirm it in writing, as soon as possible after the disciplinary hearing.
  • The employee should be given the right to appeal the decision.
  • The employer should consider if it would be appropriate to pay the employee in lieu of notice.
