Some conduct issues can be dealt with in an informal way by speaking to the employee and making them aware that their conduct is not acceptable. However, where the informal stage has not resolved the issue, or in more serious matters, you will need to take formal action. Formal action requires that a proper process is followed by the employer, and if a proper process is not followed then the action is unlikely to be fair.
For further guidance on the formal process employers need to follow see: Flowchart: Disciplinary and Dismissal
