Disciplinary explained

The University has formal disciplinary procedures in place to help and encourage improvement amongst members of staff whose conduct or performance is unsatisfactory.

They are designed to encourage staff achieve and maintain acceptable standards of conduct and alert them to the consequences of not meeting these standards. Our procedures also provide a fair and consistent way of dealing with situations where misconduct is alleged.

All University procedures are underpinned by the principles of natural justice and the ACAS code of practice.
