It is good practice for every organisation to have formal disciplinary and grievance procedures in place. Whether an employee has breached the terms of his or her employment contract, the employee handbook or the workplace policy; or has made a complaint about the way he or she has been treated by the employer, it is important to have clear procedures that ensure appropriate action is taken. When an employer wants to initiate disciplinary proceedings, for reasons such as alleged misconduct, this can result in serious consequences for the employee, such as a written warning, suspension of work, dismissal or some other sanctions. We understand that such events are stressful and time consumingwhether you are the employer initiating a disciplinary action or an employee at the receiving end of that disciplinary action.

At MWKA, we provide professional, tailored advice that will help you resolve these issues quickly and effectively.
