Susie Munro Editor's message: It is important that the arrangements for a disciplinary hearing meet the required standards of procedural fairness, for example in relation to who chairs the meeting, the employee's right to be accompanied and the way any new information is dealt with.

At the hearing, each side should have the opportunity to explain its case, so that the person or panel making the decision has heard all the relevant evidence.

Susie Munro, senior employment law editor
