In cases other than misconduct, the gathering of facts is equally relevant. In cases of either short-, or long-term absence, the facts will be the dates of the periods of absence, together with any documentary evidence, such as sick notes, letters etc that relate to the absences.

What has happened to disturb the agreement? • Is this a breach of the terms? • If so, is it a minor or a major breach? • Can it be rectified through discussion and agreement? • Will a warning, either verbal or written, be sufficient to resolve the matter? • Is the action so serious that it has brought the agreement to an end? • Have the requirements of the Disputes Resolution Regulations been followed in full? • Could any claim to Employment Tribunal be successfully defended? The rules, disciplinary and grievance procedures are an integral part of the contract of employment and the next chapter explains why.

Where an employer allows a breach of contract to go unchallenged over a period of time, this can lead to the contract being changed through ‘custom and practice’. The normal procedural steps required to remedy a breach of contract are, in descending order: 1. Investigation to confirm that a breach has occurred. 2. Informal discussion on the issue between supervisor and employee. 3. Verbal warning requiring the employee to follow specific instructions given by the supervisor/manager. 4. First written warning setting out the actual breach of contract and warning being given to the employee with regard to their future conduct.
