Disciplinaries & dismissal

If you're facing disciplinary action at work, or you've been dismissed, talk to our specialist employment solicitors.

Support if you're facing disciplinary action

As with most problems at work, it’s often best to try to sort things out informally in the first instance. There may be little warning of disciplinary action. You often only know about it when you’re asked to attend a meeting with your employer to discuss their concerns. The process may be up and running before you know where you are. The worst-case scenario is that you’re dismissed from your job and left feeling shocked, powerless and unsure of where to turn. At times like this, you need an expert at your side to support and advise you.

How we can help you

If you’re facing disciplinary proceedings at work, or worse still if you’ve been dismissed, we can help. We’ve got a lot of experience in dealing with disciplinary cases - and dismissals too. The most important thing to do is to understand the allegations against you - so that we can advise you, consider the options and, where appropriate, help you to prepare your defence and strategy. Our specialist employment team are experts in employment law, so they’re the ideal people to advise you.

Constructive, practical advice

Firstly, we’ll listen to your side of the story and get a thorough understanding of what’s happened. Then we’ll use our knowledge of the law to explain where you stand and what your options are. We’ll help you to understand your employer’s disciplinary procedure so that you know what’s going to happen. We’ll help you to prepare for any disciplinary hearings and we’ll advise you on the best way to present your case. We’ll also do everything we can to make sure you’re treated fairly – such as looking carefully at whether your employer has followed their own procedure and investigated the allegations against you thoroughly.

Moving on

If you’re going through a disciplinary process at work, you may feel that leaving your job is the only way for you to move forward. In these circumstances, we can seek to negotiate a settlement agreement with your employer as a compromise.

Representation at employment tribunals

If you are dismissed, we can advise you on whether you have a case for taking your employer to a tribunal. We can support you through that process and represent you at any tribunal hearings too.

Tailored support

When you come to us for help with a disciplinary matter at work, you’ll be at the centre of everything we do. Our aim will always be to get the best possible outcome for you. We’ll talk to you in plain English and any documents that we draft for you will also be clear and easy to understand. We’ll keep in regular touch so that you know what’s going on. We’re always pleased to see you, but we’ll use email, phone calls and letters to keep you updated so you only need to come into our office if that’s what you prefer.
