If an employee commits misconduct, the employer cannot just dismiss him. The employer needs to first hold a disciplinary hearing/enquiry. The first step in the process is that the employee needs to be informed that he (where the male is used, it also implies female) has to attend a disciplinary enquiry or, in other words, the employee must be given a notice to attend.
The employee must sign receipt of the disciplinary notice. It is advisable that this is done in the presence of a witness who must also sign to confirm that the notice has been handed and explained to the employee.
It is important to understand that the notice to attend a disciplinary enquiry is part of the disciplinary process and if it is not done correctly and not contain the above-mentioned elements, it may result in a possible claim of procedural unfairness.
