Chairing Disciplinary Hearings

Are you considering the dismissal of an employee? A disciplinary enquiry is then a MUST.

Knowing how to chair a disciplinary enquiry is critical to successfully defending a case in the CCMA / Council because the penalty for getting it wrong could be reinstatement with back pay and/or a compensation award.

In this course, Angus will outline what is expected from a Chairperson and what the critical responsibilities are, including Rules of Evidence and representation.

  • What are the employee’s rights?
  • Do I have to have a formal enquiry?
  • How do I handle an employee who refuses to attend the enquiry?
  • Do we allow legal representation?
  • What is hearsay evidence?
  • Can I admit evidence obtained illicitly?
  • What are mitigating and aggravating factors?
  • What sanctions can I apply?
