This session will provide a guide to ensuring procedural fairness in employee misconduct management, including:

  • What does procedural fairness require?
  • What is an employer’s duty to provide procedural fairness and when does it apply?
  • Key steps in managing allegations of misconduct
  • Affording procedural fairness in the course of:
  • allegations
  • investigations
  • counselling
  • warnings
  • termination
  • Record-keeping and other essentials to support misconduct investigation and disciplinary action
  • Reviewing disciplinary policies and processes for procedural fairness
  • Recent cases, including: Bartlett v Ingleburn Bus Services Pty Ltd t/a Interline Bus Services [2020] FWCFB 6429; Dr Shaodi You v Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation t/a CSIRO [2020] FWC 6852

Attending a TEN webinar couldn’t be easier. Basically it’s just like attending a seminar except that you don’t have to leave the comfort of your office or home. You just need to be available at the appointed date and time with your computer and internet connection.

Once you’ve registered for the webinar, we send you a link so that you can login to the webinar from your computer. The speaker delivers the session from their computer in real time. Just like a live seminar, you can ask questions of the speaker. You simply type your question into the question box and the speaker responds to it during question time.

At the end of the webinar session we send you a certificate to confirm your attendance and the number of CPD hours you earned.

You will need a computer with sound, an internet connection and earphones if you need to participate in the webinar in an open office environment (so you don’t disrupt those around you).
