I am in the process of arranging a disciplinary hearing for a member of staff for a company I have recently joined. The handbook, which lists the discipline procedure, is out of date i.e. ‘does not form part of a contract’ or being vague re timescales that a warning would stay on someones personnel file. I have previously enclosed a copy of the procedure with the letter to any employee however I am unsure whether to do this if the procedure is not accurate or up to date. Where do I stand?
