5. AGENCY ACTION Chief Executive Officers may establish procedures, which are not inconsistent with the Act, Regulations, By-Laws or Employment Instructions, regarding breaches of diSCipline within their Agency. 6. SUMMARY D.I~.IV1ISSAL Under section 50 of the Act, an employee may be summarily dismissed. Summary dismissal may only occur where a Chief Executive Officer is of the opinion that the action or omission constituting a breach of discipline amounts to misconduct of such a nature that it is in the public interest that the employee be immediately dismissed from the Public Sector. Where a Chief Executive Officer is considering summary dismissal, the Chief Executive Officer must first consult with the Commissioner. 7. 7.1 7.2 EI No 7 EnqUiries Nothing in the discipline process shall prevent a Chief Executive Officer from making preliminary enquiries. Advice to Under the Act the Chief Executive Officer must suspect on reasonable grounds that a breach of discipline has occurred. The Chief Executive Officer shall advise the employee in writing of the particular alleged breach of discipline and the grounds on which the opinion has been formed. The employee must be given an opportunity, within a period of 14 days, to furnish a written explanation of the matters alleged to constitute the breach of discipline. After consideration of any response from the employee, the Chief Executive Officer may arrange for an investigation to be carried out to determine whether the employee has in fact committed a breach of discipline. The Chief Executive Officer need not arrange for an investigation to be carried out if the employee admits in writing to having committed the breach, if the Chief Executive Officer is satisfied with the employee's explanation or if the Chief Executive Officer is satisfied that an investigation is not warranted. In any case the Chief Executive Officer must advise the employee in wr~ing. Discipline Page 2
