Disciplinary, Dismissal & Grievance Procedures

Guidance for employers

Dealing with delays

If the employee is genuinely unable to attend any meeting you arrange, for example if he or she is ill, you must offer another reasonable date. If you cannot make the meeting, you must offer an alternative date. If the person the employee has chosen to accompany him cannot make the date of the meeting you offer, the employee must propose another date and time which should be no more than five days later than the original date.

If this second meeting is missed, the law considers the procedure to be at an end and you can proceed with the dismissal or disciplinary action without going through any more steps.
