Mock disciplinary hearing - digital event


This interactive event provides you with a unique opportunity, within a safe environment, to see how a disciplinary hearing can work remotely. 

Our Senior Advisers will enact a fictional COVID-19 related disciplinary hearing, covering issues related to furlough, returning to work and social media. You will be able to witness the proceedings and help decide the outcome.

Business need

The Acas Code of Practice sets out principles for handling disciplinary and grievance matters in the workplace and states that procedures must always be fair and reasonable. 

During the coronavirus pandemic, procedures must also be carried out in a way that follows public health guidelines around social distancing and the closure or phased re-opening of certain workplaces.

Conducting disciplinary hearings can be daunting at the best of times and as employers now find themselves conducting these remotely, it can feel more challenging. 

Delivered to you via Zoom, this 3hr digital event will provide you with insight into what to expect in a remote disciplinary hearing and help you understand the common pitfalls to avoid when conducting a disciplinary hearing at your workplace. 

Suitable For

Delegates from all sectors of industry including: managers, supervisors, team leaders, HR professionals, business owners, Trade Union representatives, employee representatives and individuals who wish to enhance their CPD.


Our expert-led training sessions are designed to facilitate discussion and interaction. During this event you will:

  • Witness a remote COVID-19 related disciplinary hearing
  • Understand the fundamentals of a disciplinary hearing, including: who conducts the hearing, who should and should not be invited to attend and what questions can and cannot be asked
  • Discover the common pitfalls which can prove costly if not avoided
