If a claim is brought to an employment tribunal in connection with a matter that should have been dealt with through the Code of Practice, not following it could mean that your acts are deemed to be unfair.

To be safe, you must act properly and reasonably within your own full disciplinary and/or grievance procedures. By completing the Forum's disciplinary procedure template bundle, you'll find you are more likely to fulfil what is expected of you in law.

This template bundle is in a downloadable Microsoft Word format and has 18 pages, including:

  • Disciplinary procedure template
  • Disciplinary hearing procedure template
  • Verbal and written warning template letters
  • Invitation to disciplinary hearing letters.

Note: Due to the complex nature of employment legislation, please only use these templates as a guide. Without the Forum’s legal protection insurance and prior discussion with the member helpline, any action you take based on this document may be invalid.
