ABSTRACT
The article explores several legal employment issues. The code of practice issued by the conciliation service Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service (ACAS) recommends that employers should set a time limit on formal warnings that they give to employees. Commonly employees will be given warnings to last for a period of six or 12 months. Also, the charges against an employee at a disciplinary hearing must be comprehensive and precise as it is only matters charged which can form the basis for a dismissal.
