Disciplinary Appeals

An employee’s right to appeal a disciplinary outcome

Following the outcome of a disciplinary process an employee should be granted the right to appeal a disciplinary outcome. Appeals should be carried out in an efficient yet thorough manner to avoid any potential claims later.

Employees must be given a right to appeal against any disciplinary action; this also includes a right of appeal against any warnings. The appeal should be carried out impartially and where possible by a manager who was not previously involved in the proceedings. Failure to provide an employee with the right to appeal may lead to the individual bringing a claim for unfair dismissal.

When appealing a decision the employee should set out clearly and concisely the grounds of their appeal. These usually relate to any failure they perceive in the way in which the disciplinary process was dealt with for example where the disciplinary chair was not impartial or where there is evidence to support the employee’s version of events which was not considered.
