Taking disciplinary action against an employee

Last updated: 24 April 2018

You should have written disciplinary rules and procedures to deal with employee performance and conduct and you must tell your staff about them.

Your rules must say what is acceptable and unacceptable behaviour in the workplace and what action you will take if the rules are broken.

Visit GOV.UK for more information on:

  • writing disciplinary proceedings
  • disciplinary investigations and hearings
  • appeals
