Managing an underperforming employee can be challenging. Managing situations where there is an allegation of misconduct can be even more so. Get the process wrong, and you can find yourself in an employment tribunal facing a claim for unfair dismissal.
By engaging us at the earliest opportunity you can minimise the risk of a successful claim being brought against you. We can advise you on what steps you can and should take as a result of an employee’s actions. Then we can help you through the disciplinary process, making sure that it’s conducted properly and not seen as unfair.
If you feel comfortable running the process yourself, you may just want to check with us before taking each step. If on the other hand HR isn’t your forte, you might prefer us to manage everything for you, including meeting with your employee.
Just get in touch with our specialists if you’re faced with a situation like this. We can guide you through the process with advice that is tailored to what you need.
