Collyer Bristow’s Tania Goodman quoted in CIPD’s People Management magazine

Tania Goodman of Collyer Bristow has been quoted in the CIPD’s People Managment magazine on a number of common legal queries faced by HR professionals.

‘If [an] allegation amounts to gross misconduct that could lead to summary dismissal, check this is consistent with the disciplinary policy in your staff handbook or the employee’s contract. “Gross misconduct is not always straightforward,” says Goodman. “For example, if you have a clause that says someone can be dismissed for a ‘serious breach of confidentiality’, this could mean different things in different organisations.”’
