Annex E: Example Scheme of Delegation
1 Formal Warnings
The authority to issue a formal warning to an employee is vested in the employee's next-in-line manager or above.
The authority to dismiss an employee is vested in direct reports to Directors.
If an employee is a direct report of the Chief Executive and the Chief Executive made the decision to dismiss, the Appeal Panel will consist of 3 non-executive Directors of the Board.
Appeals against a formal warning will be heard by a line manager at least one level above the manager who issued the formal warning.
In instances of dismissal, the right to appeal will be to a panel which should consist of senior managers of the Board - e.g.:
- Chief Executive
- Other Executive or Corporate Director
- Chief Operating Officer
- Directors/Senior Managers
(A senior member of the Human Resources function will be in attendance to provide advice and support to the panel).
