Disciplinary issues

Being faced with disciplinary allegations at work can be extremely worrying and stressful. At Archon we have a great deal of experience of guiding executives in this kind of situation. It is often helpful to be able to take a step back from the immediate issues with help of an objective and experienced legal adviser. Whatever the merits (or otherwise) of the allegations, this can help lead to the development and execution of an effective strategy, aimed at securing the best available outcome for you and your career.

Our work for executives in this area includes:

  • Considering and distilling the issues which have led to the allegations being made
  • Assessing the likely evidence and potential outcome(s)
  • Advising in relation to participation in any disciplinary proceedings and the potential alternatives
  • Acting and advising in relation to any “off the record” settlement discussions which may take place
  • Advising in relation to any potential regulatory or other external implications
  • Providing guidance and assistance with the conduct of disciplinary proceedings and hearings, including drafting statements and collating relevant documents
  • Providing guidance and assistance with appeals against disciplinary decisions where necessary
  • Acting for executives bringing legal claims in respect of disciplinary decisions, including wrongful andunfair dismissal, and claims under the whistleblowing and discrimination legislation
