Hi everyone,

A friend of mine is attending a disciplinary hearing tomorrow, she has good evidence of innocence so the content is not the issue. The problem is the MD of the firm is the one who wants her sacked and has carried out the investigation herself ( totally unbiased of coursenono.gif) She has brought in a friend of hers in to do the disciplinary hearing and she doesn't even work for the company. Is this common or unlawful?

Thanks in advance people.

How long as your friend worked at the company? Less than 2 years, then sadly the MD can do whatever he likes as long as there is no discrimination that occurs that is covered by the single equality act.

Sabre, that is very sexist of you referring to the MD as a man . MD's can be women and in this case is :lol:

 

I would ask where is the evidence that the MD wants a dismissal , maybe she is just being careful by bringing in a 3rd party


Any opinion I give is from personal experience .

In small companies its relatively common to draft in an external (allegedly impartial) third party to hear a disciplinary hearing or grievance - it depends whether the employer has sufficient unbiased resources internally to fairly deal with the process. It isn't a sign of unfairness or a breach of the ACAS Code in itself.
