Misconduct & Dishonesty

The under-performing chairperson

The Chairman of a hearing did not fire an employee charged with a conflict of interest as he felt there was not enough evidence. The employer did some further investigation and found more and new evidence.  We were asked if a new hearing could be convened or is this double jeopardy?

 

The employer felt that the chairperson of the hearing did have enough information to fire, and now wants to discipline the chairperson for negligence or poor performance.  What advice would you give?
