Have you been given notice of a disciplinary or investigation meeting?

Quite often a disciplinary meeting can result in you losing your job. Particularly if it says so in the letter you have received from your employer.   If this is a risk you should consider taking an employment lawyer or advocate with you.

In the following video Kate offers some simple pointers about how to approach a disciplinary meeting:

What to do if you get a letter inviting you to a disciplinary meeting - No Win No Fee

 

At all times it is best to attend these meetings with an employment lawyer or employment advocate who can help you avoid the problems at these meetings.

You should contact us immediately you receive notice of a disciplinary meeting so that our advocate can arrange for the meeting to take place at a time convenient to all.

Your employment advocate will help you prepare beforehand and have a defense to the accusations as well as ensuring the disciplinary meeting proceeds fairly and with proper consideration of your rights.  Your advocate will also advise you on the possibilities of an exit package or grievance that may arise from the disciplinary meeting. They will also be able to advise on solutions to problems that gave rise to the disciplinary meeting including staff relocation and rearrangement of duties.

The advocate can guide you through the meeting and speak on your behalf as appropriate. We can advise you on your options before, during and after the disciplinary meeting.

You should be told in advance if the meeting is going to be disciplinary. You should be told what the meeting is about and how serious the outcome could be, so you can prepare and get support. If you are called to a disciplinary meeting you have the right to refuse to go ahead with the meeting until you have a support person. If your support person hasn’t had time to prepare, then the meeting must be rescheduled.

A Disciplinary Meeting Can Often Be A Great Opportunity To Turn Things In Your Favour, 

They Can Sometimes Be An Opportunity To Negotiate An Exit From What Has Become An Unhappy Situation For Both The Employer and the Employee.

Disciplinary meetings often open up the way to other employment solutions. The advocate can advise and assist you with these. With an advocate disciplinary meetings will be much easier and less stressful. With our help a disciplinary meeting can often lead to a better employer/employee relationship in the long-run.

The seriousness of the disciplinary action must reflect the seriousness of your actions: the punishment must fit the crime. Any disciplinary action, such as a warning or dismissal, must be the same action taken against other workers who have done the same thing in the past. You cannot get a harsher punishment than another worker for doing the same thing.
Contact us as soon as you are advised of a disciplinary meeting – we can help.

Never attend a disciplinary or investigation meeting without calling us first.

If you have attended a disciplinary meeting and you are unhappy with the outcome you may be entitled to raise a personal grievance.

Review of Kam Bailey

Kam Bailey was absolutely wonderful. She worked so hard for my case, with a great outcome. She had constant interaction with me, a quick outcome. A very professional style, but appreciated her personal attitude with me. I can’t thank her enough, I would recommend Kam with no hesitation to anyone.

Review of No Win No Fee

Highly Recommended!! Thanks to the caring team at work law I was able to get out of a toxic work environment and gain a more than fair compensation for the way I was treated by my bosses over the past 4 years. Reaching out to an employment lawyer was something that I was nervous to do at first but after speaking to the team at work law i was immediately put at ease and knew they were going to help me settle the issues I was having at work, taking a lot of stress off my shoulders. Thank you again work law for helping me with my unfair dismissal 🙂 – R.P from Wellington

Review of Sandy Jamison

In a time of high stress when those in the position of providing the best environment for your employment breech the brief with which they are charged with, and options are cut to nil then No Win No Fee are who you need in corner. No BS just level headed advise and a realistic plan going forward . I highly recommend this company.
