What are an employer's minimum obligations with regard to disciplinary rules and procedures?

The written statement of terms and conditions of employment issued to an employee must include a note specifying any disciplinary rules and any procedures applicable to the taking of dismissal or disciplinary decisions with regard to them. It must also give the name or job title of a person within the organisation to whom the employee may apply if they are dissatisfied with any disciplinary decision relating to them, or any decision to dismiss them. It must also explain any further steps consequent on any such application, or refer the employee to a document that explains them and is reasonably accessible.
