8. Agenda for Chair Holding Disciplinary Hearing
This is a very useful model agenda for the Chair conducting a Disciplinary Hearing to use as a guide, to make sure that the Disciplinary Hearing is structured and delivered in a comprehensive and a logical way and that everything that should be covered is addressed.
This template Disciplinary Hearing document also serves as a useful guide to write structured notes of the proceedings on, which you can use to collate your minutes.
It is crucial that the employee is given a full and fair opportunity to have their side of events heard and any mitigating factors. It is also important that the Chair understands the role of a companion (trade union official/certified union representative or a fellow worker), as noted in this document for ease of reference on the day.
