Employment Law Podcast - What is the role of HR in a disciplinary process?

AUTHOR(S): Bryan Dunne
PRACTICE AREA GROUP: Employment, Pensions and Benefits
DATE: 15.10.2015

Employment law podcast
Bryan Dunne reviews the ruling in the recent Ramphal v Department of Transport case in episode 13 in our Employment Law Podcast series. This case from the UK called into question the role of the Human Resources department in providing support and guidance to a decision maker in a disciplinary process. The ruling has implications for HR teams across the board as they are inevitably called upon to provide their expertise in disciplinary matters and advises that the conclusions in a disciplinary process should be reached independently by the appointed decision maker.

You can download all of the episodes in the series here. They are also available to download on iTunes and Soundcloud.
