    If you manage employees, from time to time discipline and dismissal will be an inevitable part of your work. Employers are under a duty to follow their procedures, make a decision that is sensible and proportionate on the facts and take all mitigating circumstances into account. Applications to tribunal have increased significantly in recent years and going to tribunal is always tough, even when you are absolutely in the right. Using real life examples, this book talks the reader through the legal framework, best practice, tactics and how to prevent getting into difficulty in the first place.
