RISK OF BEING DISMISSED?
If you have been suspended or been invited to attend a disciplinary investigation or hearing by your employer there is always a risk that this could result in your dismissal.
The threat of losing your job and potentially your career can be very stressful given the potential related loss of income, status and lifestyle.
David has expertise in helping employees facing these threats.
Advice should be taken as early as possible and in the case of accepted misconduct ideally before this comes to the attention of your employer/before any formal action is taken. There may be opportunities early on to make pre-emptive strikes before your employer has the chance to take formal disciplinary action.
You should take advice from David before you give any response to the allegations made against you. Making admissions, even in error, can damage your ability to contest the allegations in the future.

It is very important that you seek advice as early as possible in respect of disciplinary issues – time is critical and a missed opportunity can often be fatal to protecting your position or securing a good exit/deal (if applicable).
If you have been suspended from work or invited to attend a disciplinary meeting or hearing (or you suspect you may be invited to one shortly) you should seek legal advice from us immediately as taking the wrong steps at any early stage may well be fatal later, making it it far more complex, time-consuming and costly to try and challenge or overturn any disciplinary decision made.
