A staff member found guilty after a disciplinary hearing, has a right to appeal that decision. The appeal process works as follows:
The staff member has two working days, after receiving notification of the outcome of a disciplinary hearing, to appeal that decision. The Chairperson is selected by the Vice-Chancellor or DVCs. The HoD/manager is therefore not involved in this process, unless called by the Chair of the appeal as a witness.
