My younger brother has a disciplinary hearing on Friday and the gross misconduct allegations -neglect of duty (covid measures related) are correct. We are expecting that he and his colleagues will be dismissed , 3 meetings one after the other. Fortunately he's not the first, so we will probably know his fate.

Questions I have are is better to resign before being dismissed if that's even possible or take the dismissal? Our concern is regarding claiming JSA whilst applying for new roles.

Will he get paid for the notice period? He has a 1 month period, but not sure if summary dismissals will mean you get paid or not.

This will help us make the right decision.
