Commissioner's Instruction No. 4 - Discipline - former employees

This Commissioner’s instruction sets out the circumstances in which an employing authority may commence or continue a disciplinary process in relation to a person who is no longer an employee of the employing authority, and the manner in which that process is conducted.

It is intended that disciplinary proceedings in relation to persons no longer employed in an organisation be taken only in exceptional circumstances, and this instruction sets out the public interest considerations to be taken into account by an employing authority, where relevant, in determining whether to take such action.
