Disciplinary Meeting

Being called to a disciplinary meeting or investigation meeting at work can be a very stressful and intimidating experience.

Be prepared and get advice before you go into the meeting.

What our clients have said

I would just like to say a BIG "THANK YOU" for the work you'd done in guiding me and helping out [with a disciplinary process].

I shall call upon you again one day IF and should another sticky situation occur to me.

Sam is a confident, knowledgable well spoken young man. He represented me well and got the best possible outcome for me. I would recommend Sam to anyone looking for an employment advocate.

My representative took on my case and was amazing. She was really informative, she explained everything thoroughly step by step. Couldn’t have asked for a better person to represent me. Would highly recommend her.

Going to a disciplinary meeting?

Here are just a few really important things to consider beforehand:


  • DO get advice before you attend the disciplinary meeting or investigation meeting. We also strongly urge you to take an employment advocate or lawyer with you to the meeting.

  • DO get hold of all the right information and prepare your responses before the meeting.

  • DON’T take the process too lightly. Many people think that what their employer is accusing them of isn’t that bad and get a nasty shock when they are dismissed for it.



Your employer should have given you a letter to invite you to a disciplinary meeting or investigation meeting. In this letter they should have told you that you have the right to bring a support person or legal representative. This can include an employment advocate or lawyer. The employer should also have told you precisely what the allegations against you are. They should also have told you what the worse outcome could be for you. In other words, could you be given a warning or might it mean being dismissed?


If you have been called to a disciplinary meeting, or an investigation meeting, call us urgently for a free 10 minute phone consultation. We can arrange an employment advocate to attend the meeting in support of you either by phone or in person.
