Have you been told your performance is poor? Do you need advice on how you can resist this allegation?
Have you been summoned to attend a meeting to discuss your performance or suspect that you will be? Or have you already been to a disciplinary meeting and it has not gone well?
Get advice today to ensure you are being treated fairly from the start of the procedure.
We understand a disciplinary process can be an upsetting experience so our mix of practical and legal advice will help you feel in control of the situation. Your employer is likely to have been advised by either an internal or external solicitor so it is a good idea to even the playing fields.
If you have been summoned to attend a meeting to discuss your performance or suspect that you will be, it is a good idea to meet with a solicitor first; not only so you are legally prepared but so you feel calm and confident from the moment you walk in.
Whilst the meeting may not be very far away we can help you be as prepared as possible which may even help to prevent you being dismissed. We are able to advise you in relation to disciplinary meetings, such as:
what may happen in the meeting;
what you should or should not say;
what your rights are; and
what you should do if the meeting does not go well.
When you’ve already had the meeting
Have you already been to a disciplinary meeting and it has not gone well? Whether you’ve been given a warning, dismissed or subject to any form of penalty we understand what effect this can have on your reputation, career and future job prospects. We can advise you in relation to appealing the decision at work or through the courts along with practical advice moving forwards.
