Manage the situation where an employee has been disqualified from driving

Key points

  • If an employee whose job involves driving is disqualified from driving, the employer should consider its options carefully.
  • Depending on the circumstances, it may be possible for the employee to continue to perform the role without driving. The employer should consider, for example, whether or not the use of public transport is a realistic option.
  • It will be fair to dismiss an employee as a result of a driving ban only in limited circumstances. The employer must consider a number of factors, including the length of the ban, and must take steps to ensure that the procedure that it follows is fair.
