Employees have the right to be informed of what the employment issue is and that disciplinary action, up to termination is a possibility.
After employees are informed of the issues the employer is having with them, they must be given an opportunity to comment on the accusations and explain their side.
The employer must consider the employee’s version of the story with an open mind before they determine what disciplinary actions are needed, if any.
The employer has the responsibility to thoroughly investigate all accusations of misconduct. If misconduct has been confirmed, there is a process that the employer must follow in order to proceed in a fair manner.
If it is determined that the employee will be fired, the employee has the right to request a written statement from the employer detailing the reasons for their dismissal. This request can be made up to 60 days after the dismissal and the employer then has 14 days to fulfil the request.
