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?
We do not have a handbook, just a USB stick we issue to all managers with policies and procedures. Is this ok?
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?
Can an employer change any policies and procedures within the organisation, without consulting with staff, as long as it is communicated to them afterwards?
It has come to the attention of the company that an employee has put on Facebook derogatory comments about their manager. The Facebook page is set to private; however, a colleague who is a friend on Facebook viewed the comment and informed management and would like to be kept anonymous. How can HR approach this situation?
We have a query regarding workplace investigations and fairness of procedure. If an investigation is carried out by two investigation officers and they report to an investigation manager can that manager hear the case if he agrees there is a case to answer or must we refer it to a new manager to chair a disciplinary panel?
Can an employee refuse to log on to Facebook via shoulder surfing?
