Following been suspended from work one of our employees was invited to a displinary hearing because he had threatened to kill one of his colleagues at work. Towards the end of the meeting he became very aggressive and was throwing things around. As a result he was escorted out of the builing by security.
The outcome of the meeting would have been something like giving him a final written warning based on the fact that prior to this he had a clean record and had been with the company for 2.5 years.

With the turn of events where do we go from here. Can we hold a meeting in his absence and send him the decision in the post as none of the managers are willing to have another meeting with him based on his aggressive behaviour.

If he is dismissed on this basis would that been seen as being fair?

Your advice will be greatly appreciated
