Please provide some guidelines on current retirement legislation as regards employment contracts
A number of staff members have requested parental leave during exam-time; is parental leave applicable to the parents of sixth formers?
Can we enforce a contractual retirement age?
If you have a member of staff leave the company but then re-joins a few months later on a new contract of employment, does the company need to go through a full induction process with them again e.g. Health & Safety, Office Regulations, Data Protection and other company Procedures and Policies as if they never had worked for the company previously?
Can we consider increasing a penalty sanction from final written warning (FWW) to dismissal on appeal?

For how long should we retain interview records?
When an employer gives a verbal warning for misconduct to an employee after a disciplinary does this also need to be communicated to the employee in writing or only recorded for the organisation’s own purposes? Is it procedurally correct, if an employee continues to be disciplined, to give a verbal warning, then first written warning, followed by second written warning and then dismissal?
