Hold a disciplinary appeal hearing

Key points

  • At the start of the appeal hearing, the chair should explain the purpose of the hearing, how it will be conducted, and the powers that the individuals hearing the appeal have.
  • The employee should be given the opportunity to explain why they think that the original decision was incorrect.
  • Where the employee has taken advantage of the right to be accompanied at the appeal hearing, legislation specifies what the companion is and is not permitted to do at the hearing.
