25.1.6 What does 'reasonable' mean in relation to discipline?

Document

Whether the disciplinary action was 'reasonable' depends on the facts of the particular case.

Action would not be 'reasonable' if, for example:

  • the employer failed to adhere to the disciplinary process specified in the relevant regulations or code of conduct
  • there is cogent evidence of bias, discrimination or victimisation.
