I would just like to ask for an advice.
According to our employee manual, in case a deliberation for a disciplinary case have to be made, the following people are to compose the disciplinary board.
• Managing Director
• Human Resource Manager
• Department Manager
• Human Resource Officer
• Immediate Supervisor
Among all of these, only the human resource post is filled up, while the others are still vacant.
Currently, there is a need for the disciplinary board to be convened for a case filed by the EVP against the AVP Operations. But here is my dilemma, given that only the HR post is filled up, who else should compose the disciplinary board? I was initially thinking of the President, but due to health reasons, it is not advisable for him to sit on the board. The only option I'm thinking of is we ask some members of the board of trustees. But here's the catch, this is a chinese family corporation. The EVP who filed the case is the President's son. And the siblings of the President, are the ones sitting on the board of trustees.
I'm just worried that the AVP for Operations who is facing charges might see this as a family court.
Any advice? thank you!
