HOW TO PREPARE A CHARGE SHEET AND CONDUCT A DOMESTIC INQUIRY
A domestic inquiry is a proceeding held by an employer to determine whether or not an employee is guilty of the charges leveled against him. The domestic inquiry provides an accused employee with an opportunity to defend himself against specific charges. Once an investigation has been conducted and evidence gathered, charges may be drafted and issued to the accused employee. It is clear that the employer cannot justify his action on any ground other than those contained in the charge sheet and/or stated in the letter of termination. It is also pertinent to note that a charge should not include any extraneous statements which may be intended to make the charge appear serious but which cannot be proven.
