The Employment Relations Authority has rejected a personal grievance claim for unjustified dismissal.  The Manager was responsible for completing a daily checklist of safety checks and reporting on these monthly.

When the employer asked for the month’s forms he was told they could not be located.  The next day some substitute forms were produced.  The employer then discovered the booklet of proper forms but they were all blank.

After a proper disciplinary investigation the Manager was dismissed for these serious Health & Safety breaches and also for falsifying the company records.

If you need assistance with getting the disciplinary process right please call me on (04) 473 6850.
