In certain sectors it can take as long as 5 years for a disciplinary case to be brought before a disciplinary hearing. During this time if an employee is suspended, they are legally entitled to full pay until the issues are settled.
At Jay Webb Consultancy Services we offer a truly independent and unbiased disciplinary service, covering all aspects of the process from conducting an investigation to sitting on disciplinary panels.
The world of employment law is complex, dynamic, and fast-changing, we make it our business to keep right up to date with the law as it changes. When you are running your own business, it’s a pretty tall order to be up to the minute with such a multi-faceted subject.
From our experience it is often better to call in an outside expert with an open mind and an unbiased view. This is typically the case if those involved are very senior, or the issues under scrutiny are of a particularly sensitive nature such as discrimination or harassment. This leaves your managers to concentrate on doing what they do best, making your business a success, instead of being side-tracked investigating personnel issues and possibly making a situation worse rather than better, as sometimes the results produced internally can been seen as biased.
We are proud to offer our unrivalled expertise in the Care Sector, especially when allegations relating to the Protection of Vulnerable Adults Act (POVA) and the Protection of Children Act (POCA) are involved. We have vast experience of dealing with disciplinary action within the Care Sector, in particular where allegations have been made with regards to abuse of the vulnerable. We can take the stress, strain and potential impact on other members of staff away from your organisation.
