Program Overview

Whenever disciplinary action is initiated against any employee, the Principles of Natural Justice have to be followed. For suspending an employee by way of punishment or warning or censuring an employee , a domestic enquiry is not required . However for dismissing an employee, Domestic Enquiry is mandatory. The disciplinary action process has to be initiated as per the Standing orders, Service rules or terms and conditions of service of employment.

If the Principles of Natural Justice are ignored, the Domestic Enquiry becomes vitiated and courts may set aside the order of dismissal/termination. Therefore, it is essential that in the conduct of Domestic Enquiry, the procedure and the Principles of Natural Justice are followed. The proceedings should be conducted within the purview of the Industrial Disputes Act 1947
