Mock Disciplinary Hearing

This interactive event gives an insight into what to expect during a disciplinary hearing, with tips and techniques on how to best manage the process. The event covers how to handle misconduct allegations from initial investigations to a "live" disciplinary hearing where you will witness snapshots of the proceedings and decide the outcome! A case study will be used to portray this.

An experienced Acas Senior Adviser will lead you through a scenario leaving you to decide the outcome and will then explain the pitfalls to avoid so that you do not find yourself in the same position.
