The first step in defending against a disciplinary action – responding to a proposal for discipline – is critical. An employee must carefully assess the situation and develop the right strategy for maximizing the chances of securing the withdrawal or mitigation of the discipline proposed while building and preserving the record for appeal if necessary. A persuasive presentation at this initial stage often provides the best opportunity to protect an employee’s career.
For clients who receive discipline, we assess all available options for appeal to provide them with tried and tested advice focused on protecting their careers. When necessary, we zealously litigate on their behalf.
