Hi there, just because someone is under threat of redundancy, does not make them immune from disciplinary action if the need for such arises. So it is entirely possible for you to commence a disciplinary process alongside a redundancy process and then use the outcome of the disciplinary matter in the scoring for the redundancy exercise. What you should avoid doing is putting the redundancy process on hold just to allow the disciplinary one to complete and then applying the disciplinary outcome to your scores. So the redundancy process should not be dependent on the disciplinary one completing and you just need to go ahead with the redundancy scoring as normal and base the on current information. If the disciplinary has not yet completed then you should not use that in your scores. If it is just a matter of days though, between being able to finalise the disciplinary and carrying out the redundancy scores, I am sure you can time it in a way that would allow you to finish the disciplinary first anyway.
I hope this has answered your query. I would be grateful if you could please take a second to leave a positive rating (3, 4 or 5 stars) as that is an important part of our process and recognises the time I have spent assisting you. If you need me to clarify anything before you go - please get back to me on here and I will assist further as best as I can. Thank you
