Discipline: Keeping Records

You should keep all relevant documents relating to a disciplinary process, including suspension documentation; correspondence arranging meetings; notes of meetings; witness statements; documents considered in the investigation; outcome and appeal letters. It can be useful to record your rationale for certain decisions, such as your choice of investigator, disciplinary and appeal hearers. Clearly, you should treat disciplinary records as confidential and manage them in line with data protection principles.
