Podcast: Applying the disciplinary procedure

In this week's podcast, we discuss the importance of the disciplinary procedure, particularly in the context of a possible dismissal. We look at a recent unfair dismissal case in which the disciplining panel failed properly to apply its employer's procedure and how this impacted on the outcome. We also consider a case in which the employer's failure to put the disciplinary procedure on hold pending investigation of the employee's grievance was considered.
